Nay, do not think I flatter.
For what advancement may I hope from thee,
That no revenue read more

Nay, do not think I flatter.
For what advancement may I hope from thee,
That no revenue hast but thy good spirits
To feed and clothe thee? Why should the poor be flattered?

And crook the pregnant hinges of the knee
Where thrift may follow fawning.

Who flatters, is of all mankind the lowest
Save he read more
