    One sorrow never comes but brings an heir,
    That may succeed as his inheritor;
    And so in ours, some neighboring nation,
    Taking advantage of our misery,
    Hath stuffed the hollow vessels with their power,
    To beat us down, the which are down already;
    And make a conquest of unhappy,
    Whereas no glory 's got to overcome.
