Latina Time - Poem by Marieta Maglas

This game is the way in which slaughter becomes an end in itself.

Acta est fabula plaudite
The play has been performed; applaud!

Surely, less obvious ways exist
The Darkness seeks to manipulate us into its service.


Actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea.
The act is not guilty unless the mind is also guilty.


Once all of them have won a very special princess prize,
the game is over....
and they will never buy another one.....

Alis grave nil.
Nothing is heavy to those who have wings

And maybe we cannot understand what's going on,
but we can understand that the players
skillfully hide behind the walls....
They think....

Cessante ratione legis cessat ipsa lex.
When the reason for the law ceases, the law itself ceases.


We seek escape from reality, we undermine our self-esteem.
Maybe we are unable to see them, but we need to talk about this.
And maybe they do not trust us when we tell them to come to us if they need
to talk....
....about those who become their victims......


Sed ipse Spiritus postulat pro nobis, gemitibus inenarrabilibus.
But the same Spirit intercedes incessantly for us, with inexpressible groans.

    Always when the prize is won the spirit of game also ends in hiding! Charm of victory too goes away into nothingness in reality! (Report) Reply

    Dear Marieta, I am a very simple mind, I need you to elaborate on the connection of the play being performed, and the resulting darkness service I enlist in.

    and also for the other quotes. I like the latin, and it is a refreshing thought, that latina does not mean mexican, as it does so in the united states.

    Again, please write me a new poem, spelling all the thoughts you have in your mind, that happen between the latin quote, and your choral response.

    I fervently await the words written down and spoken (Report) Reply
