Quatrain

Il est méchant et boit sans cesse.
Il attrapera la maladie de ses prostituées.
Et il vendra des billets au salut après la messe.
After Pius, the next pope knows war, not peace.
He is wicked and drinks all the time.
He will get disease from his whores
Then he will sell tickets to salvation after mass.
Pope Julius II (papacy 1503-1513)
5.
Le prochain pape est aussi perdu.
L‘argent destin aux pauvres va aux corridas et aux banquets.
Il coupe les mains et les pieds aux intrus.
Leurs enfants sont esclaves, leurs maisons brûlées.
The next pope is also lost.
Money for the poor goes to bull-fights and banquets.
He cuts off the hands and feet of trespassers.
Their children are slaves, their houses are burned.
Pope Leo X (papacy 1513-1521)
6.
Sur la porte il clouera sa protestation,
Quatre-vingt- quinze plaintes contre le château.
Ils exigeront son excommunication.
Il refuse de désavouer ses mots.
On the door he will nail his protest,
95 complaints on the castle.
They will demand his excommunication.
He will refuse to recant his words.
Martin Luther (1483 -1546)
7.
Après encore un, le prochain pape ordonne que 8.000 soient tués.
Il croit aussi que la papauté est à vendre.
Refusant de croire en Dieu Lui-même, il est athée.
L‘argent de l‘Eglise, il se gne pas de le prendre.
After another one, the next pope orders 8,000 killed
He also believes the papacy is for sale
Disbelieving in God Himself, he is an atheist
