Contra los vanos principes.

Ottava rhima.

Ves Ó Phaeton[1] como hecho carretero
Para regir el carro hecho de fuego á[M]
Como des que abras˛ aÓel mundo entero
Cay˛ d’el exe enque subi˛ de šiego.

Mundo subi˛ Ó rreynar, subidos luego
Con la Fortuna sus reynos destruyen,
Despues, ˛ caen, ˛ mueren, ˛ alfin huyen.
