La Rome ridicule - Poem by Marc- Antoine Girard

Il vous sied bien, Monsieur le Tibre,
De faire ainsi tant de façon,
Vous dans qui le moindre poisson
A peine a le mouvement libre :
Il vous sied bien de vous vanter
D'avoir de quoi le disputer
A tous les fleuves de la terre ;
Vous qui, comblé de trois moulins,
N'oseriez défier en guerre
La rivière des Gobelins.
