Thomas Fuller: When all the world might smile in perfect peace

Thomas Fuller
From David’s Hainous Sinne

Were there not used in the days of yore
Enough men-murdering engines? But our age
Witty in wickedness must make them more,
By new found plotts mens malice to inrage:
So that fire-spitting canons to the cost
Of Christian blood all valour have ingrost,
Whose finding makes that many a life is lost.
