A pardon for the ancient margin

Says a scribble in a madhouse,
before the Greeks designed
their guides for despotism
and built their sewers high:

beware! I am insane,
but all of you Hellenists
should wash your hands!
I am insane, but my friends,
you should abolish pederasty!
I am insane, but civil men,
you should spoil the rod!
I am insane, but my poets,
you should write it down!
