Courtesan's Poem
So recently I've been obsessing over this poem that I heard in the opening of the movie Dangerous Beauty about the Venetian courtesans way back in the day before the Spanish Inquisition.
I even memorized it knowing it would hold no apparent use in the near future...

"We danced our youth in a dreamed of city
Venice, paradise proud and pretty
We lived for love and lust and beauty
Pleasure then our only duty
Floating there twixt heaven and earth
Drunk on plenty's blessed myrrh
We thought ourselves eternal then
Our glories sealed by gods own pen
But paradise we found is always frail
And against men's fears will always fail"


No I did not copy and paste that. I memorized it.
It is my brainworm...
