    There was a man bespake a think,
    Which when the owner home did bring,
    He that made it did refuse it:
    And he that brought it would not use it,
    And he that hath it doth now know
    Whether he hath it yea or no.

And hark to the dirge that the sad driver sings--
Rattle his bones over the stones,
He's only a pauper whom nobody owns.

It only serves to prove the living vain.
