ADDRESS TO TEN THOUSAND FLEAS, by            
First Line: "hence, ye disturbers of my sleep"
Last Line: That I may have some sleep tomorrow
Subject(s): Blood;fleas;sleep


Hence, ye disturbers of my sleep,
No more my weary body bite,
Begone, ye rogues, your distance keep,
And let me snore away the night.

What! will ye sip the crimson flood,
Ye hopping, jumping, ugly crew?
Will nothing please you but my blood?
And that let out in torrents, too.

Well, take your fill, ye thirsty elves,
You have my leave, though to my sorrow;
Drink, scoundrels, drink, and burst yourselves,
That I may have some sleep to-morrow.
