Translation Original Latin Line

What is it, Catullus? Why do you delay dying?
Nonius Tumorus sits in the curule chair,
Vatinius lies his way through the consulship:
What is it, Catullus? Why do you delay dying?

Quid est, Catulle? quid morāris ēmorī?
Sellā in curūlī strūma Nōnius sedet,
Per cōnsulātum pēierat Vatīnius:
Quid est, Catulle? quid morāris ēmorī?
