Che nel fine la Giustitia ottien sua ragione.

Justice always wins the day.


Da la falsa eloquenza Aiace vinto
Perdeo tra Greci il meritato scuto.
Nettuno poi, c’hebbe submerso e cinto
D’acqua il legno d’Ulysse irato e crudo;
Questo da l’onde al fin portato e spinto
Pervenne, ov’era de la carne ignudo
D’Aiace il corpo, tal che d’indi a poco
La giustitia di Dio tenne suo loco.

Che ancho i feroci si domano.

Even the ferocious can be tamed.


Poi, c’hebbe Antonio con la morte indegna
Di Ciceron, l’alma eloquenza morta,
S’un carro alzò la vincitrice insegna;
E di quel duo leon fur guida e scorta,
Per dimostrar, che la superbia degna
Del Roman sangue bellicoso e scorta,
Rivolta al ben de la sua patria amata,
Havea con l’armi sue vinta e domata.
