From Thetford Churchyard, England:
My grandfather was buried here,
My cousin Jane, and two uncles dear;
My father perished with inflammation in the thighs,
And my sister dropped down dead in the Minories:
But the reason why I’m here interred, according to my thinking,
Is owing to my good living and hard drinking.
If, therefore, good Christians, iyou wish to live long,
Don’t drink too much wine, brandy, gin, or anything strong.
