Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 17. VVhy we must all dye
IT being the law of Nations to restore What we have borrow'd, ther's no remedy: But being engaged to a Creditor, Who will not lose his debt: we must needs dye: Nor can we plead one halfe a termes delay; For when Death craves it, we are forc'd to pay.
