AN honeſt Country foole being gentle bred,
Was by an odde conceited humor led,
To trauell and ſome Engliſh faſhions ſee,
With ſuch ſtrange ſights as heere at London be.
Stuffing his purſe with a good golden some,
This wandring knight did to the Cittie come,
And there a ſeruingman he entertaines,
An honeſter in Newgate not remaines.
He ſhew’d his Maiſter ſights to him moſt ſtrange,
Great tall Pauls Steeple and the royall-Exchange:
The Boſſe at Billings-gate and London ſtone,
And at White.Hall the monſtrous great Whales bone,
Brought him to the banck-ſide where Beares do dwell
And vnto Shor-ditch where the whores keepe hell,
Shew’d him the Lyons, Gyants in Guild-Hall,
King Lud at Lud-gate the Babounes and all,
At length his man, on all he had did pray,
Shew’d him a theeuiſh trick and ran away,
The Traueller turnd home exceeding ciuill,
And ſwore in London he had ſeene the Deuill.
