Therefore, will men wish for nothing? If you want advice, you will allow the spirits themselves to consider what is appropriate to us, and may be useful to us; For the gods will give before delightful things whatever is the most suitable. Man is dearer to them than to man himself. We, led by impulse of our spirits, and by blind and empty desire, seek marriage and offspring of a wife. But known to them (the gods) which boys and what kind may be a future wife. Nevertheless, so that you might pray for something so that you might pledge in the chapels the internal organs and divine sausages of the pretty white pig, it must be prayed that a sound mind may be in a sound body.
What about the people of Rome?
They enjoy their fortune and being left alone.
As Tiberius ages and will soon approach death,
Sejanus, favored by Nortia, will be the only heir left.
Would embrace him as emperor,
Lacking the ability to control their future.
The people anxiously wanting to avoid containment,
Now rely on unity through bread and entertainment.
What will men desire
To have before their funeral pyre?
They wish to have kids and a wife,
And to lead the perfect married life.
Except what man does not know
Is that the gods do not this to be so.
They care for man more than man himself
And would rather him wish for perfect health.
