Cockle's Antibilious Pills

No. 2—Cockle's Antibilious Pills

‘When you ask for Cockle's Pills,
Beware of spurious imitations.’
Yes, when you ask for every ill's
Cure, when you ask for Cockle's Pills,
Some hollow counterfeit that kills
Would fain mock that which heals the nations.
Oh, when you ask for Cockle's Pills
Beware of heartless imitations.
