Marcus Aurelius calls the Poetry Crisis Line

Happy 1900th birthday to Marcus Aurelius!

ROSIE (counselor): Poetry Crisis Line, what is your emergency?
MARCUS AURELIUS (caller): You are a little soul, carrying about a corpse
ROSIE: Uh…wouldn’t that be the other way around?
MARCUS AURELIUS: as Epicetus used to say.
ROSIE: I haven’t read it. Transferring you to Epics.
