Heu quis armorum furor in tyranno est
saevit in torto similis colubro
inque divorum jugulos ab alta
sibilat arce.

Cur datur monstro lacerare divos
caede curvatum temerare dextram
magne cur rerum fator in tuorum
funere cessas.

Plura sed postquam minime licebunt
fontibus cedet furor impiorum
victus et ponent male vendicatas
orbis habenas.

Iam satis longo rabies nocentum
in mare et terras dominatur aevo
nunc Deus fontes erebo coercens
sceptra reposcet.

Ipse qui ferro est populatus aras
caede qui divum sceleravit enses
coelitum longe meliora dextra
concidet ictu.

Orbis in fontes scelerumque poenas
mugiet iam iam roboabit imis
sedibus ponti fragor et rubescent
sanguine fontes.
