    K. Philips, "A Married State"

    A married state affords but little ease
    The best of husbands are so hard to please.
    This in wives’ careful faces you may spell
    Though they dissemble their misfortunes well.
    A virgin state is crowned with much content; It’s always happy as it’s innocent.
    No blustering husbands to create your fears;
    No pangs of childbirth to extort your tears;
    Few worldly crosses to distract your prayers:
    Thus are you freed from all the cares that do
    Attend on matrimony and a husband too.
    Therefore Madam, be advised by me
    Turn, turn apostate to love’s levity,
    Suppress wild nature if she dare rebel,
    There’s no such things as leading apes in hell.
