Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 35. To a Gentleman, who was extreamly offen∣ded at the defamatory speeches of a base detractor
AT his reproachfull words doe not conceive The meanest grudge; for curs will still be barking Page 55 Nor take you notice of him, seeing a knave Is like a scabbed sheepe, not worth the marking; And this your setting him at nought will make him Swell, as a Toad, till his owne poyson breake him.
