Les biens des prodigues

mal employéz.

Sur ung hault Roch, faict d’ung mont sec & maigre:
Fruyctz sans saveur porte le figuier aigre.
Que mangent tous corneilles, & corbeaux
Au genre humain inutiles oyseaulx.
Ainsi Putains, flateurs, mangent le bien
Des riches folz, & les bons n’en hont rien.[1]

Des biens du riche fol personne ne s’en
sent sinon, Canailles, Macquereaulx, Pu-
tains, & flateurs.


1.  This is based on an idea in Anthologia Graeca, 12.185.
