Upon the Whipping of the Top
'Tis with the whip the boy sets up the top, The whip makes it run round upon its toe; The whip makes it hither and thither hop: 'Tis with the whip the top is made to go. Comparison. Our legalist is like unto this top, Without a whip he doth not duty do; Let Moses whip him, he will skip and hop; Forbear to whip, he'll neither stand nor go.
