Case is a lawyer, that ne’er pleads alone,
But when he hears the like confusion,
As when the disagreeing Commons throw
About their House, their clamorous Aye or No:
Then Case, as loud as any serjeant there,
Cries out: My lord, my lord, the case is clear.
But when all’s hush’d, Case, than a fish more mute,
Bestirs his hand, but starves in hand the suit.
