Valedictory
 
Martial (c.A.D. 40–c.A.D. 104)
 
 
OHE iam satis est, ohe libelle,
  iam peruenimus usque ad umbilicos.
tu procedere adhuc et ire quaeris,
nec summa potes in scheda teneri,
sic tamquam tibi res peracta non sit,        5
quae prima quoque pagina peracta est.
iam lector queriturque deficitque,
iam librarius hoc et ipse dicit
‘ohe iam satis est, ohe libelle.’
