Thow hadste rather have a thowsande shep to dy of the rot;" But yet nothar of both to amend wold, etc. The tanner and the boychare but lyttle ado dyd make, But the breware bent his browes, and swar by coxe soull, That withowt all coneiancc the baker made his cake. "Brewar," quod the bakere, " I befooll thy lowsey noull! Thow ladste on dubble wattere with thy great myghte boull, And maykeste thy drynke syngle, syche ys thy craftc and gynne." But bothe sayde the myllar was a false theffe to toull, Yet the all stranyd curtesey to mend who shuld, etc. The myllar he waxte made, of whom I spayke before, And the ayle-wyffe not a lyttell he begane to taunte; Firste he sayd playnly she wold augment her score, With many othar craftes that ayle-wyvys use and hawnt, As in mesur and myxsyng, which she allmost dyd grawnt; But when she sawe in ded that to barke he wold not blyn, She cald him arrante theff, and bad hem to avawnt; Yet for to amend ther was non that wold begynne.
