De el que no sabe lisongear.

Ottava rhima.

Quieres saber por que mude señores
Thesalia, y por que a’l nuevo siempre quiera?
No tiene condiçion de aduladores,
Ni jamas aprendió à ser lisongera.
Mas (como los cavallos saltadores)
Derriba à quien no entiende su manera,[1]
Y es menester para que estè domada
Echalle otra la brida mas doblada.

Notes:

1.  See Plato, Politicus 261d for the image of the ruler as supervisor of a stud of horses.
