Contra la victoria ganada por engaño.

Ottava rhima.

Sobre la tumba triste y desdichada
De Aiax llorando rasgo mis cabellos
Yo misera Virtud, ya desterrada
D’entre los hombres, que ya soy entr’ellos
(Aun siendo el Griego juez)[1] abandonada
Del engañoso engaño, que sobrellos
Dominio tiene atanto, que mi nombre
Apenas es oído de algun hombre.


1.  The Greek assembly awarded the arms of the dead Achilles to the cunning and eloquent Ulysses, not the brave and straight-forward Ajax. For Ajax’ subsequent suicide, see [A49a038].
