Songs and Their Settings
One in Ten
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 

WAS this fair face, quoth she, the cause
  Why the Grecians sacked Troy?
Fond done, done fond, good sooth it was:
  Was this King Priam’s joy?
With that she sighed as she stood,        5
  And gave this sentence then:
Among nine bad if one be good,
  There’s yet one good in ten.
