La imagine di Ocno. Di coloro, che donano alle meretrice, quello che dovrebbono rivolger nelle cose utili.

Ocnus’s Image. Regarding those who give to whores, what they should spend on useful things.


Tesse la fune di continuo; e un hora
Non perde mai la industriosa mano:
Ma quanto tesse, tanto ne divora
L’Asina, che non Ť molto lontano.
Cosi la donna ingozza, e fura, e toglie,
Quanto in molt’anni l’huomo insieme accoglie.
4. che: orig. ehe
