    You laugh now Goodman two shoes, but at what?

    My Grove, my Mansion House, or my dun Hat;

    Is it for that my loving Chin & Snout

    Are met, because my Teeth are fallen out;

    Is it at me, or at my RUFF you titter;

    Your Grandmother you Rouge nerewore a fitter;

    Is it at Forebead's Wrinkle, or Cheek's Furrow,

    Or at my Mouth, so like a Coney-Borrough,

    Or at those Orient Eyes that nere shed tear,

    But when the Excisemen come, that's twice a year.

    Kiss Me & tell me true, & when they fail,

    Thou shalt have larger Potts & stronger Ale.

    David Loggan (c. 1635-1692) (after)
