TO SIR ASTON COCKAYNE ON CAPTAIN HANNIBALL; EPIGRAM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Your captain hanniball does snort and puff
Last Line: Bring captain hough to bait your hanniball.
Subject(s): Cockayne, Sir Aston (1616-1684); Soldiers


YOUR Captain Hanniball does snort and puff,
Arm'd in his brazen-face, and greazy buff
'Mongst Puncks and Pandars, and can rant, and roar,
With Cacala the Turd, and his poor whore.
But I would wish his valour not mistake us,
All Captains are not like his Brother Dacus;
Advise him then be quiet; or I shall
Bring Captain Hough to bait your Hanniball.
