the scumme, with which course wits abound

July 23, 2016

 


  Pick out of mirth, like stones out of thy ground,
  Profanenesse, filthinesse, abusivenesse,
  These are the scumme, with which course wits abound:
  The fine may spare these well, yet not go lesse.
    All things are bigge with jest: nothing that’s plain
    But may be wittie, if thou hast the vein.
