The Soldiers Fortune:
The Taking of MARDIKE.

WHen first Mardike was made a Prey,
'Twas Courage that carry'd the Fort away;
Then do not lose your Valors Prize,
By gazing on your Mistress Eyes;
But put off your Petticoat-Parley;
Potting and sotting, & laughing and quaffing Canary,
Will make a good Soldier miscarry, etc.

Printed for P. Brooksby, at the Golden Ball in
