THE PEDLAR OPENING HIS PACK
3   And if that you do please
to see my Fardle open, My burden for to ease,
I hope that we shall Copen then straight waies.
4   From Turky, France and Spaine,
doe come my cheifest Treasure, Which doth cost much paine, I sell by waight and measure, for small gaine.
5   Farre-fetcht Indian ware,
and China hard to enter: Which to get is rare,
costs many Hues to venter, we nere care.
6   From Venice Citie comes
great store of rare Complection, From westerne lies your Gummes to keep Teeth from infection, and from Rhewmes.
7   Heere is a water rare,
will make a wench that's fiftie, For to looke more fayre
then one that wants of twenty, stil'd from the Ayre.
8   A Perriwig to weare,
or Couer for bare places: If you haue lost your heare, full many one it graces: tis not deare.
9   Heeres Poking stickes of Steele,
and Christall Looking Glasses: Here globes that round will wheele to see each one that passes, Dildo Dill.
