Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 28. That riches is a sicknesse to those, that doe not possesse the good thereof, so much as they are possest thereby
Some peoples senses wealth doth so bereave, That they to nothingelse their minds can frame: So have they wealth, as men are said to have The Ague, when 'tis th'ague, that hath them; For it afflicts them with the maladies Of covetous desire, and avarice.
