A Burnt Ship
Out of a fired ship, which, by no way
But drowning, could be rescued from the flame,
Some men leap’d forth, and ever as they came
Neere the foes ships, did by their shot decay;
So all were lost, which in the ship were found,
They in the sea being burnt, they in the burnt ship drown’d.
This week’s poem can be found here.
