Que la desventura siempre estÓ aparejada.

Ottava rhima.

De tres donzellas que echavan en suerte
qual se avia de morir d’ellas primero,
Aquella Ó quien cay˛ se˝al de muerte
Burlavase del juego verdadero.
Mas la Fortuna que en el caso fuerte
Jamas se enga˝a, luego de ligero
Con un ladrillo que cay˛ la mata.
El bien no viene, el mal no se dilata.[1]
