That you were once unkind befriends me now,
And for that sorrow, which I then did feel,
Needs must I under my transgression bow,
Unless my nerves were brass or hammer\'d steel.
For if you were by my unkindness shaken,
As I by yours, you\'ve pass\'d a hell of time;
And I, a tyrant, have no leisure taken
To weigh how once I suffer\'d in your crime.
O! that our night of woe might have remember\'d
My deepest sense, how hard true sorrow hits,
And soon to you, as you to me, then tender\'d
The humble salve, which wounded bosoms fits!
But that your trespass now becomes a fee;
Mine ransoms yours, and yours must ransom me.
Today, if you invent a better mousetrap, the government comes along with a
The taxpayer - that\'s someone who works for the federal government but
doesn\'t have to take the civil service examination.
Be wise as thou art cruel; do not press
My tongue-tied patience with too much disdain;
Lest sorrow lend me words, and words express
The manner of my pity-wanting pain.
If I might teach thee wit, better it were,
Though not to love, yet, love to tell me so;--
As testy sick men, when their deaths be near,
No news but health from their physicians know;--
For, if I should despair, I should grow mad,
And in my madness might speak ill of thee;
Now this ill-wresting world is grown so bad,
Mad slanderers by mad ears believed be.
That I may not be so, nor thou belied,
Bear thine eyes straight, though thy proud heart go wide.
