The Politick Maids Device; / OR, / The Maids distrust in CUPID's play. / Here Counsel is to all the rest, / Of Maidens fair to chuse the best, / And let the worst of Youg-men stay a while, / They are apt young maidens to beguile, / But if Maidens will be rul'd by she, / She'l fit them in their own degree: / And make them spend their breath and strength, / He should be an honest man that gain'd a wench.
