Que mal se logra lo mal ganado.[1]


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.


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

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