by Gaius Valerius Catullus (c84 BCE - 54 BCE)

O rem ridiculam, Cato, et iocosam
Language: Latin 
O rem ridiculam, Cato, et iocosam
dignamque auribus et tuo cachinno.
ride, quidquid amas, Cato, Catullum:
res est ridicula et nimis iocosa.
deprendi modo pupulum puellae
trusantem: hunc ego, si placet Dionae,
pro telo rigida mea cecidi.
