EPIGRAM: TO PLAYWRIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Playwright me reads, and still my verses damns
Last Line: In my chaste book: profess them in thine own.
Variant Title(s): To Playwright


Playwright me reads, and still my verses damns,
He says, I want the tongue of epigrams;
I have no salt: no bawdry he doth mean.
For witty, in his language, is obscene.
Playwright, I loathe to have thy manners known
In my chaste book: profess them in thine own.
