The Tempest

Cannibal, a Latin word,
in the manner of cannis, an animal
with the loyalty of a dog.

In the Bermudas, sublime irony;
it will be a devillish wind
and it shall be called hurracán.

And when the boatswain
suddenly point to a new land
Then it will be Caliban.

(Translated by Rodrigo Garcia Lopes and Charles E. Perrone)
