Looking for examples I found Kipling's "The Female of the Species" listed as Jesuitical poetry.

"And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail,
That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male."

Go figure.  

I think Martin Luther and Henry VIII were on to something.
