Megalensia 2014, Part Three

At this time, we also honor the first of the castrati,
The unfortunate Attis–but none of pity should we feel:
That which was “lost” was not for quid pro quo,
Instead his votaries–and this is not a fib
Stone-cold sober, slicing, into another existence, go.

*****

Ave Attis! Ave Cybele Magna Mater!
