tetrastichon.

Urbs veluti nullis muris, aut aggere septa,
Hostibus esse solet praeda futura suis:
Sic qui consiliis procerum Rex obstruit aures,
Efficit, ut regni culmine saepe cadat.

As a city without walls or palisade falls usually to her enemies, so a king who deafens his ears to the counsels of the best men of the realm often brings his own rule to an end.

quatrain.

Si tost l’on prend la cité sans muraille,
Comme le Roy désprouveu [=déspourveu] de conseil:
Tant l’un que l’autre (au cas qu’on les assaille)
Sont desconfitz à bien peu d’appareil.
