A Portion for an Apothecary, / Or, The Apothecaryes portion, / This ditty doth Concern a matter Rare, / Ther's few or none may with the same Compare, / It may be term'd a Net, a Snare, or Iin / That's only set to catch young Wood-cocks in / Then let no silly bird here at be Ieering, / For when 'tis Sung you'l say 'tis worth the hearing.
