Dido's roasting...

My prof showed this to us a week or two ago, and it cracks me up to no end. A quick google search brought up an earlier online posting.

"Here's to You, Vergil"
(to the tune of "The Christmas Song")

by Ed Long, Tennessee JCL

Dido's roasting on an open pyre,
Ships sail off in search of home,
Trojan epics being sung with a lyre
And helmsmen drowning in the foam --
On the way to Rome
A white sow and her thirty young
Help to mark the future site.
Tiny Iulus with his head all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
He knows that Turnus comes today,
He's loaded lots of bows and arrows
For to slay,
And every Latin wife is going to spy
To see if Trojans really know how to die.
And so we're offering this simple phrase
To classicists both old and new,
Although you've been read
Many times, many ways --
Publius, here's to you!

Okay, I have to figure out how to do mass e-mails through my college's site so that I can share this, now.
