A MONSTROUS SHAPE
Yet would I not her kindred wrong, Her nose I think is two foot long, Also her breath is very strong and fulsome.
Yet let no party her despise,
She is furnished with two pigs nies,
Though something of the largest size,
they doe become her neatly, Her ears hang lolling toward the ground More fairer then a mastie hound, Thus are her fortunes still renown'd
by hearesay.
Great store of suters euery day,
Resort vnto her as they say,
But who shall get this girle away,
as yet I doe not know: But thus much I dare vndertake, If any doe a wife her make, It is onely for her moneyes sake
he loues her.
If any young man long to see This creature wheresoere she be, I would haue him be rul'd by me,
and not to be too forward, Lest he at last should fare the worse, Although she haue a golden purse, She is not fit to be a nurse
in England.
L
Printed by M.F. for Tho: Lambert, and
are to be sold at the signe of the
Horse shooe in Smithfield.
