Contra quegli, che danno ricetto a huomini malvagi, e homicidiali.

Against those who give shelter to evil and murderous men.


E’dovunque nel porta ogni sentiero,
Cinto d’huomini al mal sempre rivolti
Elpidio, e se ne va gonfio & altero
Perche a la mensa sua mangiano molti.
Ma lacerato č da suoi partigiani,
Qual novello Atheon da proprii cani.

Contra los que se acompaņan de rufianes.

Ottava rhima.

Gran summa de ladrones te acompaņa
Scęva, y de coraįon muy generoso
Te piensas, por hazer tan grande hazaņa
Que no aya algun rufian ni hombre vicioso
Que luego no se halle en tu compaņa.
As de ser como Actęon venturoso,
El qual en ciervo siendo transformado
De sus lebreles fue despedazado.[1]

Notes:

1.  For the story of Actaeon turned into a stag and killed by his own hounds, see Ovid, Metamorphoses 3.138ff. Similarly, the hangers-on will destroy the one who has fed them.
