The vulture grim, that sick hearts torturing..

GOLLY. The Internet is pretty great, isn’t it?

Chapter XIV of Petronius’ Satyricon  has the following lines:

The vulture grim that, sick hearts torturing,
   Mangles the inmost vitals day and night,
Is not the bird complacent poets sing,
   But bitter jealousy and sore despite.

We can’t help feel this translation from the Latin lacks something.

  1. This is nothing to do with not being in the photos of the Rogister’s 10th birthday then?

  2. Er, the Rogister started in 1994. They must have forgotten that :)
