Ah, thou drowsy draffsack, wouldest thou rise at noon?
bilby commented on the word draffsack
"As in the days of wicked queen Jezabel the faithful prophets of God lived with Preachers bread and water, when the priests of Baal fared most deliciously, and pampered their miserable idle draffsack bellies with all kind of pleasant wines and dainty dishes; even so now the true ministers suffer both hunger and thirst, while the idolatrous bishops and massing priests of England live like hogs of Epicure's flock in all kind of pleasure and delicate fare."
- Thomas Becon, John Ayre, 'Prayers and Other Pieces of Thomas Becon'.
