La competenšia desigual.

RHIMA COMUN FRANCESA.

Al diestro Sacre el Milano acompa˝a,[1] á[M]
Y lo que se le cae coge y apa˝a.
El Sargo a’l Mulo sigue,[2] y muchas vešes á[M]
Menospreciados d’el coge los pešes.
Enocrates Ó mi, y el pueblo honrroso
D’el usa como de ojo laga˝oso.[3]

Notes:

1. áFor the association of the kite and the hawk see Aristotle, Historia animalium, 9.1.609

2. áFor the sargus see Emblem 29 ([A49a029]]). For its habit of following the lutarius (the mudfish) and eating the food it disturbs as it burrows in the mud, see Pliny, Natural History, 9.30.65; Erasmus, Parabolae, p. 253.

3. ácomo ojo laga˝oso, ‘like a runny eye’, a proverbial expression. See Erasmus, Adagia, 4100 (Lippo oculo similis): a runny eye is something you would prefer to be rid of, but while you have it you cannot leave it alone; similarly there are people you do not like, but you find yourself obliged to make use of them.
