Mars and Venus: / OR, / The Amorous Combatants. / Mars strives for to give Venus Castle the rout, / But she most valiantly did beat him out; / He lost the day for all he was three to one, / He could not stay, his powder all was gone: / And furthermore he got a sore mischance, / To save some Balls he spoiled his best Lance; / She bids him come as often as he will, / For all his force, she can resist him still.
