Che la sapienza humana appresso Dio pazzia.

Ne Drago si po dir, ne d’huom perfetto
Il mostro, che vedete, horrido e strano,
Che senza piedi ha testa, braccia, e petto,
E coda di Serpente, e aspetto humano.
Tai son color, che con averso effetto.
Hanno il candido in bocca e’l vero in mano
Dio non conosce, e’ndarno ad alto mira
Chi nel fango mortal s’avolge e gira.
