Yet More Bumf

Richard Corbett (1582-1635), "In Quendam Anniversariorum Scriptorem," lines 15-18, in The Poems of Richard Corbet, Late Bishop of Oxford and of Norwich, ed. Octavius Gilchrist (London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1807), pp. 52-55 (at 53):
For were it not for Christmas, which is nigh,
When spice, fruit eaten, and digested pye
Call for waste paper; no man could make shift
How to employ thy writings to his thrift.
