The Plow-mans Prophesie: / OR, / The Country-mans Calculation. / By this you may perceive when it will be, / None will be covetous, but all men free; / When these things come to pass you'l find it' plain, / No covetousness in England will remain. / But in the mean time I am of that mind, / They all will happen when the Devil is blind.
