THE GLUTTON, by            
First Line: You gobble all and each
Last Line: Dire illness to repay!
Subject(s): Gluttony

You gobble all and each
Your fancy bids you cram,
And then abuse the leech
And call his craft a sham.

The fruits of what you sow
You'll gather pretty quick;
The harvest is not slow--
Expect then to be sick.

Your belly is a pot
Collecting day by day
Its noisome food, with what
Dire illness to repay!
