Catullus is after Mamurrus again

CATULLUS 114

I tell no lie – Big Dick’s estate is vast.
Plump birds to trap on meadows lush and green,
there’s other game and fish. His income’s always been
less than expenditure. Gold flows so fast.

He is both rich and poor. Gives it to friends.
he’s the Big Dick who spends and spends and spends.
