The navel of Nebuchadnezzar!

Watch yourself,

I am not a slave,

of that vain...


Who smoked that Havana?

- Hamilcar? - Hamilcar.

- Hamilcar,

take her away from me,

before I crush her,

splinter, pulverize her,

like the glass of a watch

between the gears of a dynamo.

Hail, Caesar Augustus!

Petronius, the arbiter of taste.

# What news do you bring me? #

- Christians...

- How many times have I told you,

I do not want you to enter the

triclinium with a pipe in the mouth?

You took the triclinium

for a smoking room? Hm?

By the poet! And you who

are the poet and artist,

you smoke like a steam engine.

If I do not hit you on the head,

it's because the top hat is mine.

Caesar, the population complains!

They want bread, oil, sesterces.

Says Terces? Who is Terces?

Chastise these ignorant plebeians,

is the advice of Tigellinus.

Tigellinus, are you there? Stay.

Let's burn Rome, and rebuild

it in reinforced concrete.

What do you think of my plan?


Well, I'll go.

Are you leaving? I wanted to dismiss you,

it's even better if you're already going.


Here, burn all of Rome,

make it a fire well done.

- Caesar, I go.

- Go'.

# Go, go and come back soon,

I'll wait here. #


Mucrone! Mucrone, bring me my lyre.

Caesar, it sounds false.

Of course it is false...

That's why it's called a li-ar.

But no matter:
brilliant people

will improvise without the lire.

Music and words worthy of Nero.

Piripi, Piripi, Piripi!

Porop, porop, porop!

Parapira, parapappa, piraparapappa,

piraparapappa, piraparapappap!

I'm composing the second part.

Parapiraparapappap, pappap, pappap!

Oh, oh, oh...

Pom, pom, pom...

- I forgot to close the tap.

- Pom...

Tigellinus, the empire is mine.
