The Fox and the Frog

Abandoning her moyst and Spungie Cell
Th' ambitious Frog design'd 'mongst beasts to dwell,
Pretends to Physick, and that each disease
She can with charmes of powerfull arts apease.
Most beasts doe credit her except the Fox
Who with Iust Laughter her imposture mocks,
Sayinge, could her dull Skill so much prevaile
Whose meager Aspect is so leane and pale,
She to reforme her owne defect should try
And not to them her vaine receipts aply.
Experienc'd Docters are declared so
Not from Loud boasts but from their cures we know.
Like crazy Structures Straight to ruin drop
Pretenses which no reall action prop.
