Epitaph - John Adams

An Epitaph A Day
Keeps Death's Spectre Away


John Adams
Carrier, Porter
Southwell (obit. 1807)

John Adams lies here, of the parish of Southwell,
A carrier who carried his can to his mouth well;
He carried so much, and he carried so fast,
He could carry no more — so was carried at last;
For the liquor he drank, being too much for one,
He could not carry off — so he's now carrion.
