Fui dell'antica Roma un cittadino
ora Abate Luigi ognun mi chiama
conquistai con Marforio e con Pasquino
nelle satire urbane eterna fama
ebbi offese, disgrazie e sepoltura
ma qui vita novella e alfin sicura

(I was a citizen of ancient Rome
now everybody calls me Abbot Luigi
with Marforio and Pasquino I conquered
eternal fame in urban satire
I received offences, mistreatment and burial
but new life here, and safe, at last)
