Epitaph On John Adams, Of Southwell - A Carrier, Who Died Of Drunkenness

Rating: 2.9


JOHN ADAMS lies here, of the parish of Southwell,
A Carrier who carried his can to his mouth well:
He carried so much, and he carried so fast,
He could carry no more‑so was carried at last;
For, the liquor he drank, being too much for one,
He could not carry off,--so he's now carri-on.
