Purgatory 7/7

Our own transgression was hermaphrodite;
But because we observed not human law,
Following like unto beasts our appetite,

In our opprobrium by us is read,
When we part company, the name of her
Who bestialized herself in bestial wood.

Now knowest thou our acts, and what our crime was;
Wouldst thou perchance by name know who we are,
There is not time to tell, nor could I do it.

Thy wish to know me shall in sooth be granted;
I'm Guido Guinicelli, and now purge me,
Having repented ere the hour extreme.

  1. So is basically what your saying is that I'm in purgatory because I'm either gay?

    Because if it isn't you don't know me at all as well as you think.

    I want to rant properly, but I'm leaving it at that...
