They accused Nero, who was neither wise nor mad.

Ask Tacitus and he will tell you the truth:

It is Rome that set Nero on fire.

 

 

-2-

Mill

 

 

In the beginning, he used to turn the mill following his mood.

Now, the mill turns him following its mood.

 

 

 

-3-

Now, words developed a similar hobby, sliding out of your head.

He signed his extension and left

 

He passed by her, looked into her eyes and had her looking into his.

Ever since, he no longer passes by.

She felt her belly and made sure that he has signed his presence and left.
