EPIGRAM: 118. ON GUT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Gut eats all day and lechers all the night
Last Line: Lust it comes out, that gluttony went in.
Subject(s): Gluttony


Gut eats all day and lechers all the night;
So all his meat he tasteth over twice;
And, striving so to double his delight,
He makes himself a thoroughfare of vice.
Thus in his belly can he change a sin:
Lust it comes out, that gluttony went in.
