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.

El provecho d'el dao ageno.

Ottava rhima.

Estando en el hervor de la pelea
Un bravo puerco, y un leon muy fiero
Y mientras este y aquel vener desea
Como es de coraon diestro y gerrero,
El beuytre comedor de alto lo ojea
De aquel ageno mal muy plaentero.
Sabiendo que ha de ser para el la presa
De qualquier dellos que llevare empresa.
