AVARICE.

Contre les Avaricieux.

PROBLEME.

Septitien riche entre tous marchans,
Duquel nul plus n’ha de terres, & champs
Perd en jeunant soy, & ses tables braves:
Ne mange rien sinon bletes, & raves,
Que semble cil que rend povre abondance?
Ung asne? Oy. Il en ha l’evidence:

Et se nourrit de ronces, & chardons.[1]

Bien asne est celluy qui abondant en bons
fromens, vins, bestail, & volaille: mange pain
moisy, L’ard rance, & boit vin tourné, ou
despense.
