Vox populi famelica per silentium tabernus pinguis in facium

 ©Kenneth Mick III October 2011

[Note:  “β” represents a heavy “ss” sound, like in hiss. The word “Groβe” is German and pronounced like “GROSS-ay.” It means “great,” “large,” “grand,” or “fat.” ]

Further note: This is a previously unpublished work, but it was well received by my literature professor in the Fall 2011 BCC semester.
