Medical Practitioners, Death, Putrefaction

    ' ——, of worm-destroying note, / With little folks who breed 'em, / Has all his life been poisoning worms, / And now's consign'd to feed 'em. / Thus, 'twixt our doctor and his foes, / Accounts are pretty 'trim; / For many years he lived by those, / And now these live on him.'
