By John Donne
Hee soone for her too harsh, and churlish grew,
Abell (the dam dead) would use this new
For the field. Being of two
kindes thus made,
He, as his dam, from sheepe drove wolves away,
And as his Sire, he made them his owne prey.
Five yeares he liv'd,
and cosened with his trade,
Then hopelesse that his faults were hid,
Himself by flight, and by all followed,
From dogges, a
wolfe; from wolves, a dogge he fled;
And, like a spie to both sides
false, he perished.
