Dead and Alive. / This Ditty out of Glocester=shire was sent, / To London for to have it put in PRINT: / Therefore draw near, and listen unto this, / It doth concern a man that did amiss, / And so to shun the anger of his Wife, / He thought with poyson for to end his life: / But in the stead of poyson he drank Sack, / For which his Wife did soundly pay his Back.
