Fabula Facilis: Milvus Aegrotans

Milvus aegrotat periculose,
et remedia nil efficiunt.
Accersiti sunt medici, sed frustra.
Medici milvo dicunt,
"Dispone in ordine res tuas!"
Milvus tandem, moriturus,
matrem vocat et ei dicit,
"O mater,
in medicis humanis
spes nulla salutis est!
Deos precari debes tu
pro mea valetudine."
Mater respondet incunctanter,
"O fili, ex deorum parte
nihil tibi sperare potes;
nec in nomine tuo,
nec in causa tua
Diis supplicare possum:
sacra enim et aras eorum
toties rapinis violasti!"

This story is based on 425. Milvus Aegrotans.
