Contra gli Avari.

Against the avaricious.

l’huom, ch’amassa danari, & Ŕ si vile,
Che si pasce di rape, o cosa tale;
Ne mai per cangiar pelo cangia stile,
Ch’Avaritia maggior sempre l’assale;
E veramente a l’Asino simile,
Che, quanto il peso, pi¨, ch’ei porta, vale,
Ei men l’assaggia: e per vivanda cara
Sol si pasce di spini, e d’herba amara.
