Let the Times Run on Their Course

Alexander Brome (1620-1666), Song XXXIV (The Reformation), stanza 11:
'Tis a madness then to make
  Thriving our employment,
And lucre love, for Lucres sake,
  Since we've possession, not enjoyment;
Let the times run on their course,
For opposition makes them worse,
  We ne'r shall better find 'um;
Let Grandees wealth and power engross,
And honour too, while we sit close,
And laugh and take our plenteous dose
  Of Sack, and never mind 'um.
