the bitch 5

Great Moments In The History Of European Literature...
What if...

What if Bertold Brecht had been writing his most famous portentous aphorism in the Tearman cafe, Kilcullen, and he'd read it aloud to himeslf to savour the rhythms of his prose thusly: "So the world got together to stop the bastard (referring to Hitler) but time has moved on. And the bitch that bore him is in heat again."
And Rowena Baines leans over from the adjoining table and said: "You can't say bitch."
