Text: ’Tis pity poor Barnet, a vigilant cur,‥


’Tis pity poor Barnet, a vigilant cur,
that used for to bark if a mouse did but stir,
should being grown old and unable to bark,
be doomed by a priest to be hanged by his clark,
I pray good sir therefore weigh right well his case,
and save us poor Barnet, hang cleric in’s place.
