I Ask't Phisitions what their counsell was
For a mad dogge, or for a mankind Asse?
They told me though there were confections store
Of Poppie-seede, and soueraigne Hellebore,
The dog was best cured by cutting & kinsing,
The Asse must be kindly whipped for winsing.
Now then S.K. I little passe
Whether thou be a mad dog, or a mankind Asse.
