tetrastichon.

Hic equus armisonae dum creditur esse Minervae,
Inclusum lateri continet exitium.
Sic quos esse bonos probitas extraria fingit,
Cordibus occultant dira venena suis.

This horse, they say, is the work of Minerva of the crashing armour; it holds destruction in its belly. Just so, those who external probity pretends are decent men hide fearsome poison in their hearts.

quatrain..

Ce grand cheval tant bien fait par dehors
Portoit en soy des Troyens la ruyne.
Ceux bien souvent sont pires dans le corps,
Qui par dehors nous font plus sainte myne.
