PROPTEREA CAPTIVUS
DUCTUS EST POPULUS[1]

Therefore my people are gone into captivity

Ce phantastiq a dequoy sustenter
Ses appetits, s’ils estoyent raisonnables:
Mais comme fol s’ayme mieux contenter
De vivres peincts, plaisans, non profitables.
On void tels cas aujourd’hui deplorables,
En maints gentils & sublimes espris,
Qui se paissans de mensonges & fables
La verité solide ont en mespris.

Notes:

1.   Isaiah 5:13
