Sir John Davies
Yet Other Twelve Wonders of the World
by Sir John Davies
IV. The Lawyer
The Law my calling is, my robe, my tongue, my pen,
Wealth and opinion gaine, and make me Iudge of men.
The knowne dishonest cause, I neuer did defend,
Nor spun out sutes in length, but wisht and sought and end :
Nor counsell did bewray, nor of both parties take,
Nor euer tooke I fee for which I neuer spake.
