61.6

you should never foment or become a protagonist for iconoclasm
inciting ‘bonfires of the vanities’
else you’ll end up like Savonarola
sent to the gallows
and burned

but should you, then advise
only those who you’d dare show your ‘cabinet of curiosities’
else too like John Tradescant the Younger – a Elias Ashmole ends up with your treasures
leaving your wife with sorrows
and waned
