First Line: Although my years be not yet two-and-twenty
Last Line: And play at dice together, idle scamps!
Alternate Author Name(s): Asklepiades Of Samos


ALTHOUGH my years be not yet two-and-twenty,
I'm sick of life as any man can be.
O Loves, with work to do elsewhere and plenty,
Why must you make your bonfires out of me?
Nay, little Loves, where will you find employment
When this poor soul you've teased so long decamps?
Ah, sure enough, fall to your old enjoyment
And play at dice together, idle scamps!
