Contre les bougres.

Au faict vilain & au dire est estrange,
Lascher son ventre au vaisseau ou l’on mange.
C’est exceder de sainte loy mesure,
Comme estre infect par inceste Luxure.[1]

Detestation de l’abominable peché
contre nature, par comparaison sem-
blable d’un tresvillain faict.

Notes:

1.  This controversial emblem (Daly 80) first appeared in the 1546 Latin edition. For a commentary see www.mun.ca/alciato/c080.html.
