Lysistrata   




Ah! what a bad thing it is to let yourself be led away by other


women! Why give me such pain and suffering, and yourself into the


bargain?


MYRRHINE (as he is about to embrace her)


Hands off, sir!


CINESIAS


Everything is going to rack and ruin in the house.


MYRRHINE


I don't care.


CINESIAS


But your web that's all being pecked to pieces by the cocks and


hens, don't you care for that?


MYRRHINE


Precious little.


CINESIAS


And Aphrodite, whose mysteries you have not celebrated for so


long? Oh! won't you please come back home?


MYRRHINE


No, least, not till a sound treaty puts an end to the war.


CINESIAS


Well, if you wish it so much, why, we'll make it, your treaty.
