Villosae indutus piscator tegmina caprae
Addidit ut capiti cornua bina suo,
Fallit amatorem stans summo in litore Sargum[1]
In laqueos simi quem gregis ardor agit.
Capra refert scortum similis fit Sargus amanti,
Qui miser obscoeno captus amore perit.

When a fisherman has dressed himself in a shaggy she-goat skin and placed twin horns on his head, he stands at the edge of the beach, and tricks the passionate sargus, whom desire for the snub-nosed herd drives into the trap. - The she-goat represents the whore, the sargue is like the lover, who perishes, wretched fellow, in the toils of unwholesome love.

Notes:

1.  A sort of fish, possibly the sea-bream, believed to be unable to resist the smell of she-goats. See Aelian, De natura animalium 1.23.

Esperance prochaine.

Tourmentée est Republicque, de tant
De maulx, que seulle esperance est restant.
Comme une nef en mer aulx vents tendue
De toutes pars par les flotz ja fendue.
