Sum tibi Mercurius ; venio Deus huc ego, ut ille
Pingitur: an renuis ? vis tu gaudere relictis?
Deest aliquid summae, minui mihi : sed tibi totum est
Quicquid id est. Ubi sit fuge quaerere quod mihi quondam
Legarat Tadius, neu dicta repone paterna:

Ut tuus iste nepos olim satur anseris extis,
Cum morosa vago singultiet inguine vena,
Patriciae immeiat vulvae? mihi trama figurae
Sit reliqua, ast illi tremat omento popa venter?

Vende animam lucro, mercare atque excute sollers
