 +73 years before the advent of the christian era,
 +as rome was taking over any land within reach,
 +setting up proxy governmnents in the conquered lands,
 +there lived one such man given just such a job.
 +gaius verres. go.
 +
 +a praetor held a position which operated on trust.
 +he was to govern instead of the emperor himself.
 +it was an easy easy privilege to abuse.
 +and verres did so.
 +
 +he was the governor of agrigentum which we now know as sicily.
 +and he stole everything that wasn't nailed down,
 +took improper advantage of other men's wives.
 +the list goes on. trust me.
 +cicero wrote it all down.
 +
 +at syracuse verres welcomed a band of pirates.
 +they all drank and danced and sang on the shore,
 +and when the husband of one of verres'​s paramours
 +came bringing a fleet of boats with him, 
 +verius, clever, if diabolical, gave him a job.
 +and enlisted the pirates to burn the whole fleet down.
 +
 +the boats burned in the sicilian harbor
 +the flames rose hundreds of feet into the air
 +we stood on the shore watching them burn we stood
 +on the shore, we heard the old songs. hey!
