Priapea

A large body of gutter-latin exists that pays tribute to the god Priapus, the wooden-phallused god of the garden. Here is such a poem: Priapea XXV Hoc sceptrum, quod ab arbore ut recisumst, Nulla iam poterit virere fronde, Sceptrum, quod pathicae petunt puellae, Quod quidam cupiunt tenere reges, Cui dant oscula nobiles cinaedi, Intra viscera furis ibit usque Ad pubem capulumque coleorum.
