EPIGRAM: ON CAPTAIN HAZARD THE CHEATER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Touched with the sin of false play in his punk
Last Line: Since when he's sober again, and all play's made.


Touched with the sin of false play, in his punk,
Hazard a month forswore his; and grew drunk,
Each night, to drown his cares: but when the gain
Of what she had wrought came in, and waked his brain,
Upon the account, hers grew the quicker trade.
Since when he's sober again, and all play's made.
