A Rebus

A REBUS

Two fifths of what makes the support of Man’s life,
Add on half that they do, who have a bad Wife,
Joined to what very oft is bestowed on the dead,
And the name of a Village may plainly be read,
Where the industrious Nymphs their Housewifery shews,
And the Swains are most wealthy, though not many Beaus.
