La herençia del rico.

Ottava rhima.

Toman en falsas armas de esta parte
A Patroclo vestido los Troyanos,[1]
Los Griegos viedanlo, y al fin se parte
Que el cuerpo aquestos, y los soberanos
Despojos tiene Hector. Tal ensarte
Ay en muriendo los ricos ufanos.
Rençillas ay, mas hęredero viene
Por quien el cuervo y bueytre parte tiene.[2]

Notes:

1.  For the death of Patroclus, see Homer, Iliad, 16.784ff. He borrowed Achilles’ armour to fight the Trojans when Achilles refused, and was killed by Hector, who took the armour.

2.  ‘Vulture’ (buitre) was a term used to refer to people who hang round rich persons, hoping for a legacy. See Erasmus, Adagia, 614 (Si vultur es, cadaver exspecta).

In garrulum & gulosum.

Against a noisy and gluttonous fellow

Voce boat torva, praelargo est gutture, rostrum
Instar habet nasi multiforisque tubae.
Deformem rabulam, addictum ventrique gulaeque
Signabit, volucer cum truo pictus erit.

It screams with a harsh cry, it has an enormous throat, a beak like a spout or a many-holed trumpet. The pelican bird, when painted, will indicate an ugly ranter, enslaved to lust and belly.
