"I've been shut up here long enough to repent bitterly the destruction of Tiktok. Of course Ozma will have revenge, and send an army to fight us, but we must take our medicine. One thing comforts me: Tiktok wasn't really a live person."
we must take our medicine??
Child: 'I don't want to take it. It tastes yuck.'
Parent: 'You have to take it. It will do you good. Hold your nose and drink it all down in one go.'
Good afternoon teacher Bobk,
Thanks for your correction, however will be enough kind to explain me why it must be 'to be punished'.
Oh! I am not agreeing with you about your interpretation of 'take our medicine'. I argue my opinion.In the quote the focus of the issue is the war and naturally I in mind It is not to take care of the health person in this extract.
Do you follow the way of what I think?
See you soon.
As for 'being punished', that's just the way it is: in English (as in French) the construction calls for a past participle: punished/puni. The rest of the phrase doesn't work the same in both languages, but they both use a past participle.
