Pour celuy qui ne scait flater.

Veulx tu savoir, Pourquoy c’est que Thessaille
D’ung Duc, ą aultre, ainsi souvent tressaille?
(C’est qu’a flater elle n’ha point apprins ce,
Lequel vice est en toute court de Prince,
Mais comme un noble, & bon cheval, met bas
Son chevaucheur qui regir ne scait pas.)[1]
Point toutesfoys cruel ne soit le maistre,
Ung mors plus dur pour vengence doibt estre.

Les rebellions populaires viennent par
mauvaise administration des Princes.

Notes:

1.  See Plato, Politicus 261d for the image of the ruler as supervisor of a stud of horses.

Concorde.

Au sang civil ardent de toutes pars
Quand par soy cheut Romme,[1] terre de Mars,[2]
Coustume estoit les bandes ensemble estre,
Et assembler l’une ą l’autre la dextre
Concorde, & foy ha celluy signe humain,
Que ceulx que joinct la foy, touchent la main.

C’est le commun signe de la foy civile que
toucher la main dextre l’un ą l’aultre.

Notes:

1.  Cf. Horace, Epodes 16.2, ‘Rome is being destroyed by her own might’ (written during the civil conflicts of 41 BC).

2.   ‘Martial land’, a reference not only to Rome’s bellicose history but to the legend that Rome’s founder Romulus was the son of Mars, the god of war.
