ELEGY ON THE DEATH OF A MAD DOG
Good people all of every sort,
Give ear unto my song;
And if you find wond‟rous short,
It cannot hold you long.
In Islington there was a man,
Of whom the world might say,
That still a Godly race he ran,
Whene‟er he went to pray.
A kind and gentle heart he had,
To comfort friends and foes;
The naked everyday he clad,
When he put on his clothes.
And in that town a dog was found,
As many dogs there be,
But mongrel, puppy, whelp and hound,
And curs of low degree.
This dog and man at first were friends;
But when the pique began,
The dog, to gain some private ends,
Went and bit the man.
Around from all neighboring streets,
The wond‟ring neighbor ran,
And swore the dog had lost his wits,
To bite so good a man.
The wound it seem‟d both sore and sad,
To every Christian eye:
And while they swore the dog was mad,
They swore the man would die.
But soon a wonder came to light,
That show‟d the rouges they lied;
The man recovered of the bite ,
The dog it was that died.
