Les biens des prodigues mal
employéz.

Sur un hault roch, faict d’un mont sec & maigre:
Fruictz sans saveur porte le figuier aigre.
Que mangent tous corneilles, & corbeaux
Au genre humain inutiles oyseaux.
Ainsi Putains, flateurs, mangent le bien
Des riches folz, & les bons n’en ont rien.[1]

Des biens du riche fol personne
ne s’en sent sinon, Canailles, Mac-
quereaulx, Putains, & flateurs.

Notes:

1.  This is based on an idea in Anthologia Graeca, 12.185.
