Line Latin Text English Translation
1 Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo I will sodomize you and face-fuck you,
2 Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi, bottom Aurelius and catamite Furius,
3 Qui me ex versiculis meis putastis, you who think, because my poems
4 Quod sunt molliculi, parum pudicum. are sensitive, that I have no shame.
5 Nam castum esse decet pium poetam For it's proper for a devoted poet to be moral
6 Ipsum, versiculos nihil necesse est; himself, [but] in no way is it necessary for his poems.
7 Qui tum denique habent salem ac leporem, In point of fact, these have wit and charm,
8 Si sunt molliculi ac parum pudici, if they are sensitive and a little shameless,
9 Et quod pruriat incitare possunt, and can arouse an itch,
10 Non dico pueris, sed his pilosis and I don't mean in boys, but in those hairy old men
11 Qui duros nequeunt movere lumbos. who can't get it up.
12 Vos, quod milia multa basiorum Because you've read my countless kisses,
13 Legistis, male me marem putatis? you think less of me as a man?
14 Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo. I will sodomize you and face-fuck you.
