Who is this mother of civil Roman Imperium and cradle of culture? There's a feministic fury for re-definition of terms.

The material, signed by a single heteronym, covers a thousand ways not to say the word: via accounts, credit, creed, cultivation’s graft, combat and concupiscence.

Are love and war as inextricably implicated as natural power and spring-time vegetative attraction?
