In Devo’s song Freedom of Choice there’s a part that goes, “In ancient Rome there was a poem about a dog who had two bones. He picked at one, he licked the other, he went in circles 'till he dropped dead.”
So… what is this poem? I’ve heard reference to it in other places, but for some reason I never caught the source material, or the author. I’ve been googling it, but it’s been fruitless. I’d like to know its original context. Ideally I’d like an English translation accompanied with the original Latin, but whatever anyone can dig up, I’d appreciate. Thanks.
