Upon Jone and Jane
by Robert Herrick

Jone is a wench that's painted ;
Jone is a Girle that's tainted ;
      Yet Jone she goes
      Like one of those
Whom purity had Sainted.

Jane is a Girle that's prittie ;
Jane is a wench that's wittie ;
      Yet, who wo'd think,
      Her breath do's stinke,
And so it doth? that's pittie.
