A slightly late Valentine's eBook

Sometimes I let myself fall into the habit of expecting all period literature to be terribly staid and respectable, because that's what one usually find transcribed. So I was slightly startled to come across The Choise of Valentines, or The Merie Ballad of Nash His Dildo. It's exactly what you think it is, a delightfully ribald little poem by Thomas Nash. Not exactly deathless poetry, but fun and a tad over the top...
