Excerpt

foi do Campeão famoso,
E huma Cadella, Saragoça dita,
Brava qual Palafox, de huma dentada
Ganindo a deixa, e patinhando em lama;
Pasma de ve-lo extatica Lisboa,
Tintos de sangue os olhos, e de espumas
Os cantos cheios, da rasgada bôca.
Não cançado, mas de bravo encosta
As ancas á parede, e espera affouto,
Que inimigo maior se mostre em campo;
E tão sanhudo está, tão furibundo,
Que cuida a gente ao ve-lo, que do Inferno
A ver a luz sahira o Cão trifauce.
Eis lhe surde de hum bèco enlameado;
C'huma orelha rasgada o Cão do Grego
Manquejando de hum pé, raivoso ainda;
Como esquecido da passada coça
O dente lhe arreganha, e alçando o rabo
Fez signal de investir; e o grão Rafeiro
Deu dois passos de ataque, e no cachaço
Tão funda lhe enterrou toda a dentuça,
Que o miserando Cão, de olhos, e rabo
