La riqueza del tyranno probreza
de los subjettos.

Ottava rhima.

Lo que es el baço en el cuerpo humano
Su Fisco ser en publico negocio
Solia dezir aquel Caesar tyranno.[1]  [M]
Que quanto el baço cresçe con el oçio
Tanto se desminuye el cuerpo sano
Que le tiene por mal viçino y soçio:
Y ansi tambien d’el Fisco la riqueza
Arguye del subjetto la pobreza.

[Marginalia - link to text]Vespasiano.

Notes:

1.  The Roman emperor in question is here identified as Vespasian; Mignault’s commentary in 1584 identifies the emperor Trajan: see [FALc146]
