Paramount Punning; On Setting Up and Sitting Down
Extract, Poetry, Drollery
One stanza reads: 'A quack sets up the doctor's trade, / But could he use the sexton's spade / No better than his pills, / The man might toil from morn to night, / And find his match with all his might / To bury half he kills'.
