ISSUE:  Fall 2016


Empta domus fuerat tibi, Tongiliane, ducentis:
  abstulit hanc nimium casus in urbe frequens.
Conlatum est deciens. Rogo, non potes ipse videri
  incendisse tuam, Tongiliane, domum?



You bought yourself a low-cost house
  for only forty thou’.
Then lost it in a city fire;
  they burn so often now.

Insurance paid out well, I heard:
  ten times the sale amount.
I just can’t help but ask myself
  if you burned down your house.
