HERE FOLLOW CERTAIN OTHER VERSES, AS CHARMS, TO UNLOCK .. CRUDITIES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Here, like arion, our coriat doth draw
Last Line: Being in fear to be robbed, he most learnedly begs.


A
Here, like Arion, our Coriat doth draw
All sorts of fish with music of his maw.

B
Here, not up Holborn, but down a steep hill,
He's carried 'twixt Montrell and Abbeville.

C
A horse here is saddled, but no Tom him to back,
It should rather have been Tom that a horse did lack.

D
Here, up the Alps (not so plain as to Dunstable)
He's carried like a cripple, from constable to constable.

E
A punk here pelts him with eggs. How so?
For he did but kiss her, and so let her go.

F
Religiously here he bids, row from the stews,
He will expiate this sin with converting the Jews.

G
And there, while he gives the zealous bravado,
A rabbin confutes him with the bastinado.

H
Here, by a boor too, he's like to be beaten
For grapes he had gathered before they were eaten.

I
Old hat here, torn hose, with shoes full of gravel,
And louse-dropping case, are the arms of his travel.

K
Here, finer than coming from his punk you him see,
F. shows what he was, K. what he will be.

L
Here France, and Italy both to him shed
Their horns, and Germany pukes on his head.

M
And here he disdained not, in a foreign land
To lie at livery, while the horses did stand.

N
But here, neither trusting his hands, nor his legs,
Being in fear to be robbed, he most learnedly begs.
