George Economou, "Carmen Mentulae"

Good men to lay down
to use him frankly
                           Natura’s puppet.
When she pulls the string
from above the clouds
                                    there’s no choice
but to follow men’s goddess
                                             or to dream
The god Priapus saw I,
                                    and with hys sceptre in honde.
That’s the king to make a garden
of your garret:
                      Lucretius and Lactantius
                      discussed it
but Martial wrote with his.

         Saepe soloecismus mentula nostra facit.

Another fucking grammatical error?

Somebody knew what he was doing
when he put it in the first declension
with all those feminine nouns.
