Matthias Pantaleon VIII


Like a tall tale full of twist
Of path hive with ant hills and loop holes
The path of nobility is stitch in haste
By men of vile birth and deed

That the Olympus is envied
By men of means is a foul tale
But the gods are cursed wit greed
And the height is but a measure of mischief

A prince must be humble
If humility is a grace that grew on every oak
That the owl is a proud bird is a foul tale
'Cause the sparrow appears noble

Here my son
The tales of the pub is forbidden
For they envy your 'Olympus'
Schemes to curse your pace
Like worms lure sharks

A prince must be noble like day
And witty like nightfall
For the mean are full of twist like a hive path
A dagger in their hands is swift than light
