Thomas Logge
by Walter de la Mare


Here lies Thomas Logge--a rascally dogge
A poor useless creature--by choice as by nature;
Who never served God--for kindness or Rod;
Who, for pleasure or penny, -- never did any
Work in his life--but to marry a Wife,
And live aye in strife:
And all this he says--at the end of his days
Lest some fine canting pen
Should be at him again
