From "The EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES in the Book of Heads entitled
HUMAN PASSIONS DELINEATED": PLATE 28

   
 

Q

UOTH Hal to Dick, I know it's true
   Thou courted Doll, my wife;

Nay, fame doth whisper, k——d her too,
   Which thought's the plague of life.

That fame, quo' Dick's a lying bitch,
   Whom none but fools will hear:
But knaves, quo' Hal, give th' courtiers itch,
   For which I wring thy ear.
