But now, the two of us are left here quite alone.
Think how we’ll die far worse than all the rest,
if we defy the law and move against
- the king’s decree, against his royal power.
- We must remember that by birth we’re women,
and, as such, we shouldn’t fight with men.
Since those who rule are much more powerful,
we must obey in this and in events
which bring us even harsher agonies.
I will obey those in control.
