Tatwine Riddle 34: De faretra


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Omnia enim dirae complent mea viscera flammae,
Nam me flamma ferox stimulis devastat acerbic,
Ut pacis pia mox truculenter foedera frangam.
Non tamen oblectat me sponte subire duellum.


Fearful flames truly fill all my insides,
For with bitter stings a fierce fire devastates me,
So that soon I cruelly shatter the pious treaties of peace.
Yet I do not enjoy waging war of my own accord.
