B: Xxxxxxvi: Naughtiness On The Side

Antisthenes Agnostes,
ex 'Proudest in Hell',
anticipating ease in suffering
from new king suffering worse,
avidly rowed past sufferers
known to king Don Juan,
who was pondering above the wake:
I am not surprised
I am here for pride.
I am, to have to share with them.
Damn! I wasn't proud enough
to get them into heaven.
They had time for naughtiness.
Damn! this last boat ride.
