Quanto sia dannosa la gola.

How harmful greed is.


Il Topo avezzo a roder le vivande,
Un di mal di mangiar satio e contento
Un’Ostriga trovo capace e grande,
Che a caso tenea aperto il monumento.
Ei v’entra audace, e cerca in quelle bande:
Ella tosto si chiude, e’l serra drento.
Cosi la gola’che meschin condusse,
A perpetua prigion sciocco l’addusse.
