A.M. Juster

Reading poet, Latin translator and former civil servant Mike Juster’s Sleaze and Slander. Here’s an unconditional skewering:

“On the Man Who Found Treasure When He Meant to Hang Himself” (from the Latin of Ausonius  310-395AD).

A man who had knotted a noose

saw gold and cut himself loose.

The owner discovered the knot

and hoisted himself on the spot.
