Cincinnatus

In the fourth grade Mrs. Eiler

asked us if we knew who Cincinnatus was.

Sure, we said (we weren’t dumb) “he

founded Cincinnati. He beat his sword

into a plowshare, took up farming.”

Well, she said, that all sounds good,

but just remember that before he

could do that, he had to win the war.

No farming unless you win.
