Book Four: Melpomene
Pepper and I slept very well last night
His jumping in fire gives me a fright
Pepper is a very special feline
Oh how I wish I could draw a straight line
The Scythians history I'm writing
Poet Aristeas has me crying
I draw the Scythians' geography
Oh Pepper! Pepper! Please come back to me!
Africa, Asia and Europe compare
Oh! There is a bumble bee in my hair!
Getae brutally worship Zalmoxis
I am having a hard time wording this
Poor poor Scythia Darius attacks
A Greek soldier yells: "Hands behind your backs!"
The Androphagi are eaters of men
I wish I could have seen that way back then
Darius' attack on Scythia failed
My younger wayward brother has been jailed
I talk about Libya from East to West
I think my right hand smells the very best
Arg! Pepper don't stick your paw in that soup
That feline is throwing me for a loop
