PRISCOS cum haberes, quos probares, indices,
  lector, placere qui bonis possent modis,
nostri libelli cur retexis paginam
nugis refertam friuolisque sensibus,
et quam tenello tiro lusi uiscere?        5
set forte doctis si illa cara est auribus
sonat pusilli quae leporis commate
nullo decora in ambitu sententiae,
hanc iure quaeris et libenter incohas,
uelut iocosa si theatra peruoles.        10
