A STATUTE FOR SWEARERS
R.P.G.
Y Ou that sweale out your life in beastly drinking; Vntill your bodies
and breaths be stinking: You that sit sucking still
at the strong barrell, Till into tatters rent
turnes your apparell: You that by guzling
transforme your best features, Changing your selues from men,
to swinish creatures: Forsake now your follies,
your booke cannot saue you: For if you s we are and be drunke,
the stockes will haue you.
