First Line: Hypocrisy will serve as well
Last Line: As well as eggs to make hens lay.
Subject(s): Hypocrisy

HYPOCRISY will serve as well
To propagate a church, as zeal;
As persecution and promotion
Do equally advance devotion;
So round white stones will serve, they say,
As well as eggs to make hens lay.
