The Cackling Of A HenThe hen, so soon as she an egg does lay,Spreads the fame of her doing what she mayAbout the yard she cackling does go,To tell all what work she now did do.Just thus it is with some professing men,If they do any good, just like our henThey cackle of it wherever they go,What their right hand does their left hand must know.Lessons From Nature by John Bunyan
