TURNER'S DISH OF LENTEN STUff
15 THat 's the fat foole of the Curtin,
and the leane foole of the Bull: Since Shanke did leaue to sing his rimes,
he is counted but a gull. The players of2 the Banke side,
the round Globe and the Swan, Will teach you idle trickes of loue,
but the Bull will play the man.
16 But what do I stand tattling,
of such Idle toyes: I had better go to Smith-field,
to play among the Boyes, But you cheating and decoying3 Lads,
with your base Art-tillery: I would wish you shun4 Newgate,
and withall the Pillery.
17 And some there be in patcht gownes,
I know not what they be: They pinch the simple5 Contry men,
with nimming of a fee. For where they get a booty,
theyle make him pay so deere, Theyle entertaine more in a day,
then he shall in a yeere.
18 Which makes them trimme vp houses,
made of brick, and stone: And poore men goe a begging, when house and land is gone.
