  PANEGYRIC ON THE LADIES  

             READ ALTERNATE LINES


That man must lead a happy life
    Who's free from matrimonial chains,
Who is directed by a wife
    Is sure to suffer for his pains.

Adam could find no solid peace
    When Eve was given for a mate;
Until he saw a woman's face
    Adam was in a happy state.

In all the female race appear
    Hypocrisy, deceit, and pride;
Truth, darling of a heart sincere,
    In woman never did reside.

What tongue is able to unfold
    The failings that in woman dwell?
The worth in woman we behold
    Is almost imperceptible.

Confusion take the man, I say,
    Who changes from his singleness,
Who will not yield to woman's sway
    Is sure of earthly blessedness.

                                                Unknown.
