Hymn to Silenos

I pray to Silenos
Noble drunkard, wise fool,
Wild man of the woods,
Foster-father to the Bacchic One.
Horse-eared and horse-tailed,
You ride your ass through the revels,
Dispensing inebriated philosophy,
As wise as it is slurred,
As caring as it is jumbled.
Bless us with your wisdom
And don't fall off.
