|The Leading Citizen|
(Latin poet, 65 B.C.8 B.C.. Translation by John Milton)
|WHOM do we count a good man? Whom but he|
|Who keeps the laws and statutes of the senate,|
|Who judges in great suits and controversies,|
|Whose witness and opinion wins the cause?|
|But his own house, and the whole neighborhood,|| 5|
|Sees his foul inside through his whited skin.|
