Translation, from Czech, of J.S. Machar’s “Pasquino na smrt papeže Hadriana VI”

Pasquino on the death of Pope Hadrian VI

Hadrian dead? Well, pink his ticker
with a prick, that he be dead for certain.
And on his death, twice recite, three times,
and validate belief, that it’s the naked truth.

Hadrian dead! You, if you truly have soul,
get up, go, to where all Rome joins in chorus,
to the home of the surgeon to the departed,
to herald the liberator of your homeland!
