Early Renaissance Men Having Grappa

bygreenmountaineer©

They had paper before we did, Aldo,
but their calligraphy, such as it is,
lacks Giotto's linear perspective.
Furthermore, we have our basilicas
and I my plenary indulgences
as well as Clement's handwritten promise
of absolution should commerce inspire
a second imbroglio with Sforza.

But what can we do? We have to offset
Our tithing to His Holiness, don't we?

And why don't those little yellow men know
the Silk Road like all roads must lead to Rome?
