The man who spurned two love-wrought snakes
In reptilian copulation
The blind seer, auspicious he
And his clairvoyant recitation.
Born a male and died a man
But for committing a transgression,
Lived some years on the distaff side
In a feminine intercession.
At the moral of the auger's tale,
The head, interspecting, nods:
We should take an active role
In abiding by the gods.
