The Unkindest Cut
By Martial (c. 40–c. 104 A.D.)
 
LAST night as we boozed at our wine,
  After having three bottles apiece,
You recall that I asked you to dine,
  And you’ve come, you absurdest of geese!
I was maudlin, you should have been mellow,        5
  All thought of the morrow away:
Well, he’s but a sorry good fellow
  Whose mind’s not a blank the next day!
