Is there a doctor in the house? Fried mice and spiders in butter will cure a deep and deadly wound, and make a sick man stand. Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick, afflictions sore long time she bore but why should a man die who has sage in his garden? Mars doth rule the nettle wrapped in weapon salve, while the tooth fairy, ugly and venomous, yet wears a precious jewel in her head. Call the midwife for harelips, webbed toes and sleeping princesses; Dame Trot’s cure for bosom serpents was a night of Venus and a lifetime of Mercury.
