Que los buenos no tienen porque
temer Ó los ricos.

Ottava rhima.

Mario y Subardo,[1] grandes abogados,
En la chanšilleria bien conošidos,
Como son ricos estan conšertados
De como en dos Harpias[2] convertidos
Echarme de mis pobres sotechados.
Y avrianlo hecho los descomedidos,
Si mi firmeza y simple pensamiento
No les fuessen los dos hijos d’el viento. á[M]

[Marginalia - link to text]Zetes y Calais.

Notes:

1. áMarius, the typical self-made man (referring to humble origins of Gaius Marius, the consul and general). Subbardus, possibly ‘Mr. Thick’.

2. áThe Harpies, symbols of injustice, were carrying off or soiling Phineus’ food so that he could not eat. He was delivered by Zetes and Calais, the winged sons of the North Wind and Oreithyia. See e.g. Ovid, Metamorphoses 6.711-7.4.
