BACK AND SIDE GO BARE, GO BARE!1
(Translated by Dr. Maginn)
Non possum mult am edere,
Quia stomachus est nullus ; Sed volo vel monacho bibere,
Quanquam sit huic cucullus. . Et quamvis nudus ambulo.
De frigore non est metus; Quia semper zytho vetulo
Ventriculus est impletus. Sint nuda dorsum, latera—pes, manus algens sit, Dum ventri veteris copia zynthi novive fit.
Assatum nolo, tostum volo,
Vel pomum igni situm; Nil pane careo, parvum habeo
Pro pane appetitum. Me gelu, nix, vel ventus vi
AfBcerent injuria ; Haec sperno, ni adesset mi
Zythi veteris penuria. Sint nuda, etc.
Et uxor Tibie, quae semper sibi
Vult quaerere zythum bene, Ebibit haec persaepe, nee
Sistit, dum madeant genae.
I From Marchant's " In Praise of Ale."
