A Looking-Glass for a Bad Husband: Or, / A Caveat for a Spend-thrift. / You that are guilty of that sinful Crime / Of Drunkenness, strive for to leave it off in time: / Lay up your Money, do not it vainly spend; / For in your greatest need, it will be your best Friend. / Endeavour in your Youth, lest in old Age you want; / For when that Poverty doth come, Friends will be scant.
