@uschi_the_listener I read that Hafiz was "bitterly opposed by supposed 'men of the spirit' who denounced him as an infidel and libertine. Unable to understand the allegorical nature of his work, they assumed that it was blasphemous, dangerous, superficial and pornographic". No wonder we enjoy his verse.
@wordsmith I have a teacher friend who is showing a long documentary about the Great Depression 5 times today and has to sit through it and prod the kids to answer questions and respond and pay attention... 5 times in a row. He could do it hanging upside down like a bat in his sleep. Let alone fantasizing about getting thoroughly laid.
@wordsmith Writing sexual fantasy poems for schoolteachers is an errand of mercy.
