Nemesis

The goddess of justice, to show her grudge,
Clapt asses' ears upon the judge ;
A goodly pair, erect and wide,
Which he could neither gild nor hide.

The personification of divine justice and the vengeance of the gods, sometimes called the daughter of Night. She represents the righteous anger of the gods against the proud and haughty and against breakers of the law; she distributes good or bad fortune to all mortals. No one can escape her power.
