Here is the world, empty and round,
it goes up and down, glitters and bounces,
it dances around the sun,trembles and roars, gives and destroys;
now barren, now fertile,
this is the world.
On its huge old back there is a race
both profligate and mad, haughty, cowardly,subtle and wicked,
whose members devour one another ceaselessly
from the topmost peak to the bottom-most depths
of the wicked world.
An empty fable is Satan to them,
Hell is a matter for mockery and derision,
Paradise for derision and mockery.
Oh by God!
Let me have a good laugh now
thinking of what I'm hiding from them!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
There goes the world!
