Contre les bougres.

Au faict villain, & au dire est estrange
Lascher son ventre au vaisceau ou l’on mange.
C’est exceder de saincte loy mesure,
Comme estre infect par inceste Luxure.[1]

Detestation de l’abominable peché contre Nature,
par comparaison semblable d’ung tresvillain faict.

Notes:

1.  This controversial emblem (Daly 80) first appeared in the 1546 Latin edition. For a commentary see www.mun.ca/alciato/c080.html.
