XXIX. TO SIR ANNUAL TILTER.
TILTER, the most may admire thee, though not I ;
And thou, right guiltless, may'st plead to it,
For thy late sharp device. I say 'tis fit
All brains, at times of triumph, should run wit :
For then our water-conduits do run wine ;
But that's put in, thou'lt say. Why, so is thine.
put in...thine, playing on two different definitions of "put in":
first, "interjected", second, "stored away". ]
