“Listen carefully to my words; let this be the consolation you give me.
Bear with me while I speak, and after I have spoken, mock on.
“Is my complaint directed to a human being? Why should I not be impatient?
Look at me and be appalled; clap your hand over your mouth.
When I think about this, I am terrified; trembling seizes my body.
