No vos sino la religion.

Ottava rhima.

Como un asnillo que la Ceres santta
Con tardo paso en procision llevava
Viesse por toda parte gente tanta
Que cada paso en par d’el se humillava,
En tal sobervia entre si se levanta
Que a si se di el honor que ella se dava,
Hasta que el palo y voz dixeron junto
No soys vos Dios, mas llevays su trasunto.[1]

Notes:

1. See Aesop, Fables 266; Erasmus, Adagia 1104, Asinus portans mysteria.
