De Lucri Cupiditate

Here is today's distich by Michele Verinus:

De Lucri Cupiditate
Conditio misera est lucri intoleranda cupido,
Hiberni haec vexat turbinis instar aquas.


Here is the vocabulary:

de - about, concerning
lucrum - gain, profit
cupiditas - desire, yearning
conditio - condition, situation
miser - wretched, unfortunate
sum - be, exist
intolerandus - unbearable, insupportable
hibernus - winter
hic - this, this one
vexo - shake, toss violently
turbo - whirwind, tornado
instar - like, as
aqua - water
