A Long, Unhappy Life

Greek Anthology 7.349 = Simonides, Elegies and Sympotica, fragment 103 Sider (tr. W.R. Paton):
After eating little and drinking little and suffering much sickness I lasted long, but at length I did die. A curse on you all!

βαιὰ φαγὼν καὶ βαιὰ πιὼν καὶ πολλὰ νοσήσας,
   ὀψὲ μέν, ἀλλ᾽ ἔθανον. ἔρρετε πάντες ὁμοῦ.
