Lesbia se iurat...

Here is today's distich by Martial, 11.62:

Lesbia se iurat gratis numquam esse fututam:
Verum'st; cum futui vult, numerare solet.

Lesbia ne'er gratis sports, she says:
'Tis true; for when she sports, she pays.
- Anon.

Here is the vocabulary:

Lesbia - Lesbia
se - reflexive pronoun
iuro - swear
gratis - for free, gratis
numquam - never
futuo - have sex
verus - true
sum - be exist
cum - when
volo - want, wish, will
numero - count, count out, add up
soleo - be accustomed to, usually
