Contra los que se acompañan de rufianes.

Ottava rhima.

Gran summa de ladrones te acompaña
Scęva, y de coraçon muy generoso
Te piensas, por hazer tan grande hazaña
Que no aya algun rufian ni hombre vicioso
Que luego no se halle en tu compaña.
As de ser como Actęon venturoso,
El qual en ciervo siendo transformado
De sus lebreles fue despedazado.[1]

Notes:

1.  For the story of Actaeon turned into a stag and killed by his own hounds, see Ovid, Metamorphoses 3.138ff. Similarly, the hangers-on will destroy the one who has fed them.
