The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift/Volume 7/Joan Cudgels Ned

JOAN CUDGELS NED. 1723.


JOAN cudgels Ned, yet Ned's a bully;
Will cudgels Bess, yet Will's a cully.
Die Ned and Bess; give Will to Joan,
She dares not say her life's her own.
Die Joan and Will; give Bess to Ned,
And every day she combs his head.
