Cassandra is screaming in the attic

The Trojan Horse is full of Russians, she cries

No, no, say the old men in the agora,

The Mexican satyrs are the ones to fear.

Keep your women in the gynaeceum, safe from the outside world.

The time is coming, young philosophers.

Will you flee to Canada with Aeneas,

Or join Clytemnestra in the streets, with her pussy hat and her man-slaying axe?
