Wit’s an unruly engine

July 24, 2016

 


  Wit’s an unruly engine, wildly striking
  Sometimes a friend, sometimes the engineer:
  Hast thou the knack? pamper it not with liking:
  But if thou want it, buy it not too deere.
    Many affecting wit beyond their power,
    Have got to be a deare fool for an houre.
