My translation of Priapea 5

"Though I am a wooden Priapus, as you see,
and a wooden rod and woody tree,
I will nevertheless capture you, and hold you, seized
and all of this, how great it is, without trickery,
stiffer than the strings of a lyre and racks for binding,
toward your seventh rib, I will bury.”

Original:

Quod sum ligneus, ut vides, Priapus
et falx lignea ligneusque penis,
prendam te tamen et tenebo prensum
totamque hanc sine fraude, quantacumque est,
tormento citharaque tensiorem
ad costam tibi septimam recondam.”
