A CATCH, by            
First Line: Some write in the praise
Last Line: Or cry 'damn you and sink you?'
Subject(s): Praise

SOME write in the praise
Of tobacco and wine;
Whilst others praise women,
But snuff shall be mine.

For still as you sneeze
And 'che-ho' do cry,
'God bless you, God bless you'
The people reply.

Snuff causes this blessing,
Then tell me what think you;
Is't best to say so,
Or cry 'damn you and sink you?'
