Poem 27 by Catullus

1 MINISTER uetuli puer Falerni
   (Come, boy, you who serve out the old Falernian,)

2 inger mi calices amariores,
   (fill up stronger cups for me,)

3 ut lex Postumiae iubet magistrae
   (as the law of Postumia, mistress of the revels, ordains,

4 ebriosa acina ebriosioris.
   (Postumia more tipsy than the tipsy grape.)

5 at uos quo lubet hinc abite, lymphae
   (But water, begone, away with you, water,)

6 uini pernicies, et ad seueros
   (destruction of wine, and take up abode)

7 migrate. hic merus est Thyonianus.
   (with scrupulous folk. This is the pure Thyonian god.)

Translation and wonderful analysis:

Reading by aikuinen:

Emulated sid, TB-303, cookie tin lids, a piano, violin, cello, all sorts of nonsense, put together using LMMS, audacity.
