Lysistrata   


Now at any rate you look like a man, and they won't make fun of


you. Ah! if you had not offended me so badly, I would take out that


nasty insect you have in your eye for you.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


Ah! so that's what was annoying me so Look, here's a ring, just


remove the insect, and show it to me. By Zeus! it has been hurting


my eye for a long time now.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


Well, I agree, though your manners are not over and above


pleasant. Oh I what a huge great gnat! just look! It's from


Tricorythus, for sure.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


A thousand thanks! the creature was digging a regular well in my


eye; now that it's gone, my tears can flow freely.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


I will wipe them for you-bad, naughty man though you are. Now,


just one kiss.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


A kiss? certainly not


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


Just one, whether you like it or not.
