GEORGE WALTER THORNBURY
English writer
(1828 - 1876)

"Dear sinners all," the fool began, "man's life is but a jest,
  A dream, a shadow, bubble, air, a vapour at the best.
    In a thousand pounds of law I find not a single ounce of love,
      A blind man killed the parson's cow in shooting at the dove;
        The fool that eats till he is sick must fast till he is well,
          The wooer who can flatter most will bear away the belle"
            . . . .
              And then again the women screamed, and every staghound bayed;
                And why? because the motley fool so wise a sermon made.
      - The Jester's Sermon [Preaching]
