A Discription of Plain-dealing, Time, and Death, / Which all Men ought to mind whilst they do live on earth. / Abuse not Plain-dealing, but keep your Conscience clear, / Spend well your Time also, then Death you need not fear. / Plain-dealing is grown out of Date / Because he is poor, many him hate: / Conscience likewise is laid aside, / 'Cause he base Actions can't abide.
