Mars and Vulcan in opposition: / FOR, / When Mars and faire Venus were both in conjunction / the Cyclops beheld them with some of his fellowes, / Poore Vulcan was horned by one of the function, / Whilst he silly Cuckold was blowing the bellowes: / Mars did unto Venus what his skill could afford her, / And dub'd Vulcan Knight of the new forked order.
