Fabula Facilis: Navigantes in Eadem Navi Inimici

In eadem navi sunt duo inimici
qui inter se capitalia odia exercent.
Unus eorum in prora residet,
alter in puppi.
Tempestas ingens orta est,
et omnes de vita desperant.
Is qui in puppi sedet
gubernatorem interrogat,
"Utra pars navis prius submergetur?"
Gubernator respondet,
"Prora iam submergitur."
Tum ille dicit,
"Iam mors mihi non molesta est,
quod inimicus meus in prora sedet,
et eius mortem adspecturus sum."
