Sylvestre Le Sac de Rome 1890.jpg  

Night has fallen and the barbarians haven't come.
And some of our men who have just returned from the border say
there are no barbarians any longer.

Now what's going to happen to us without barbarians?
Those people were a kind of solution.

~ Constantine P. Cavafy ~
