Sappho Says Die Yuppie Scum!

Our friend Tamara emailed me this poem by Sappho. Since it has no title, I will call it “Ode To Bloomberg”.

Rich as you are

Death will finish

you: afterwards no

one will remember

or want you: you

had no share in

the Pierian roses

You will flitter

invisible among

the indistinct dead

in Hell’s palace

darting fitfully

As you can see, hating on yuppies is a time honored tradition that dates back to ancient Greece. 🙂
