Old men may safely fart and pass wind.
In Azithromycin’s sight
Peristalsis soothed and sphincter held
Brings to hearts a peace abiding,
And sleep throughout the night
Smooth and easy may my offerings flow
Neither rudely swift
Nor obstinately slow.
With apologies to Salomon Franck
And thanks to an unknown graffitist wit of Pompeii, whose epigram in Latin is poetically translated by an archaeological graffitologist whose name I forget.
