In quoscumque locos videam contraria cerno,
illi nigra placent illi sed displicet album,
illa viro mulier vult vivere foedere juncta,
musica cantores amat et celebratur ab ipsis,
est incredibilis penitus mutatio rerum
sic breve quod legitur longum pronuntiat ille,
quotquot sunt homines totidem sententiae habentur.
