And why an honour'd ragged shirt, that shows,

Like tatter'd ensigns, all its bodie's blows?

Should it be swathed in a vest so dire,

It were enough to set the child on fire;

Dishevell'd queen[s] should strip them of their hair,

And in it mantle the new rising heir:

Nor do I know ought worth to wrap it in,

Except my parchment upper-coat of skin;

And then expect no end of its chast tears,

That first was rowl'd in down, now furs of bears.



But since to ladies 't hath a custome been

Linnen to send, that travail and lye in;

To the nine sempstresses, my former friends,

I su'd; but they had nought but shreds and ends.

At last, the jolli'st of the three times three

Rent th' apron from her smock, and gave it me;

'Twas soft and gentle, subt'ly spun, no doubt;

Pardon my boldnese, madam; HERE'S THE CLOUT.
