tetrastichon.

Ut quoquoversum graditur cogente timore,
Ambulat & cancer dexteritate pari:
Utile sic etiam nostros invertere mores
(Postulat hoc si res, aut patiatur) erit.

As the crab turns in any direction with equal dexterity as fear forces it, so it will prove useful to turn even our habits upside down if the situation demands or allows it.

quatrain.

L’escrevice est de cheminer habile,
Tant en avant qu’en arrier’ s’il fuyt:
Changer noz meurs est chose tresutile,
Quand nous voyons, que ce faire nous duit.
