Que mal se logra lo mal ganado.[1]

TERCETOS.

Un comedor milano vomitava
Aquello de que antes se avia enchido,[2]
Y que echava sus tripas se quexava.
Amansale su madre aquel quexido
Diziendo que porque suyas pensava
Las tripas ser que de otro avia comido.

Notes:

1.  The title is proverbial. See Cicero, Philippics, 2.65.

2.  The kite was a figure of greed and extortion.

MALE PARTA MALE DILA-
buntur.[1]

Ill gotten, ill spent

Emblema 127

Miluus edax,[2] nimiae quem nausea torserat escae,
Hei mihi mater, ait, viscera ab ore fluunt.
Illa autem, quid fles? cur haec tua viscera credas,
Qui rapto vivens sola aliena vomis?

A voracious kite, which had eaten too much, was racked with vomiting. ‘O dear, mother’, it said, ‘entrails are pouring out of my mouth.’ She however replied: ‘What are you crying about? Why do you think these are your entrails? You live by plunder and vomit only what belongs to others.’

Notes:

1.  The title is proverbial. See Cicero, Philippics, 2.65.

2.  ‘A voracious kite’. The kite was a figure of greed and extortion.
