Poem by Richard Garnett

On a Certain Partership

Damon, who plied the Undertakers trade,
With Doctor Crateas an agreement made.
What linens Damon from the dead could seize
He to the Doctor sent for bandages;
While the good Doctor, here no promise-breaker,
Sent all his patients to the Undertaker.

 [From the Greek.]
