Does anyone have the poem "Upon an honest man's fortune" by John Fletcher and can post it here? your views on the poem will be good.
Here's a link to the poem:
The complete version (rather longer than the exerpt in Peters link) is at the end of the play of the same name, here: [www.archive.org] - scroll down about three-quarters of the scroll-bar.
I only got it by googling the first line of the poem from Peter's link, - I'm too lazy to type it out so was hoping for a cut and pasteable version, which this is - so he deserves credit for finding this version, too
Its extremely interesting - I go with his idea that man won't find his fate in the stars, unless it's to be run over by a bus while gazing upwards!
