Vendetta giusta.

Just revenge.

Mentre disteso nel suo cavo speco
Sta Polyphemo: e canta, o pecorelle,
Gite pascendo voi l’lherbe novelle,
Ch’io mi pasceṛ poi del sangue Greco:
Ulysse, ch’era da vicino, audace
L’assalta, e l’occhio che sol ne la fronte
Havea, gli toglie, vendicando l’onte
Di mille e mille, e se n’anḍ; con pace.
Cosi’l fato quell’empio a orhezza mena.
E cosi nel suo autor cadde la pena.
