Obesa Cantavit - The Fat Lady Has Sung - Poem by Juan Ponce de León

Obesa cantavit.

Obesa cantavit
“Pretium iustum est.”
Labera lege...
Monstra mihi pecuniam!
O! Plus! Perge! Aio! Hui! Hem!



The fat lady has sung.

The fat lady has sung
“The Price is Right.”
Read my lips...
Show me the money!
Oh! More! Go on! Yes! Ooh! Ummm!
