Davies: The Mouse that Fell into the Pot

A mouse into a lid-less broth pot fell;
Choked with the grease and bidding life farewell,
He said, "My fill of meat and drink have I,
And all good things; 'tis time that I should die."
Thou art that dainty mouse among mankind,
If hurtful sweets are not by thee declined.
