Annals of Volusius, shitted sheets,
Fulfill the vow of my girl.
For to the sacred Cupids and Venuses
She promised, if I were restored to her
and I stopped to shake out savage iambs,
that she would give the most select writings
of the worst poet to the lame god
to be burned for unlucky firewood.
And in this way she saw that the worst girl
Wished humorously and charmingly to the gods.
Now O you having been created from the blue sea,
who dwells in the sacred Idalium and open Urium,
and who dwells in Ancona and reedy Cnidus,
and who dwells in Amathus and who dwells in Golgi,
and who dwells in the Dyrrachian shops of the Adriatic,
grant this vow having been accepted and returned,
if not uncharming and not unwitty.
But you come into the fire, meanwhile,
full of crudity and clumsiness,
annals of Volusius, shitted sheets.

Annales Volusi, cacata carta,
votum solvite pro mea puella.
Nam sanctae Veneri Cupidinique
vovit, si sibi restutus essem
dessemque truces vibrare iambos,
electissima pessimi poetae
scripta tardipedi deo daturam
infelicibus ustulanda lignis.
Et hoc pessima se puella vidit
iocose lepide vovere divis.
Nunc o caeruleo creata ponto,
quae sanctum Idalium Uriosque apertos
quaeque Ancona Cnidumque harundinosam
colis quaeque Amanthunta quaeque Golgos
quaeque Durrachium Hadriae tabernum,
acceptum face redditumque votum,
si non illepidum neque invenustum est.
At vos interea venite in ignem,
pleni ruris et infacetiarum
annales Volusi, cacata carta.
