Par main d’autruy la lampe veut esteindre
Ce Chahuan, qui hait toute lumiere,
Pour puis apres à boire l’huile atteindre,
Sans qu’on le puisse au jour chasser arriere.
Or l’Antechrist cuide en ceste maniere
Esteindre aussi par Rois le fleurissant
Regne de Christ, clarté vive & entiere,
Pour devorer puis apres l’innocent.

SIC VIVO

Thus I live

xxi.

Pingue oleum sitiens, exosam lampada bubo
Non tamen ipse sua comprimit ante manu.
Et Satan, Veri impatiens, inimica malorum
Saevus in insontes commovet arma ducum.

Longing for the greasy oil, the owl does not however press the hated lamp with its own hand. And Satan, unable to bear the Truth, ferociously moves the hostile arms of wicked leaders against the innocent.
