This just in

a loyal Roman reader has a go:

At home again in 'Airstrip One' (or else,
Presaging worse, now styled 'the God-free Zone'),
You will be gratified, we trust, to know
Your post card was with diligence dispatched
This very morning, even as we hope
You will remember that the exigence
Of our own postal pact is 'quid pro quo.'

Quite so.

(Trans: I promised to post a letter in exchange for putting a postcard in the mail from Rome).
