The Sayings of Purzil Crofe
A busy man complained one day, “I have no time.”
“What’s that you say?” cried his friend a lazy fizz.
“You have, sir, all the time there is.
And plenty too, don’t doubt you do.
Nothing more, nothing less.

Have a glass with me of sherry.
What’s a moment, more or less.”

“If I die and go to hell,
How shall I pay the devil’s due?”
“Alas, sir, I know only this,
Fain is the young man to waste his time,
A man is old and little time remains
He dies and loses both time and wealth.”
