Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Earl of Dorset
 
  Backward, like a witch’s prayers.  1
  Deep conceits, like maggots, breed in carrion.  2
Wit, like fierce-claret, when’t begins to pall,
Neglected lies, as ’f of no use at all;
But, in its full perfection of decay,
Turns vinegar, and comes again in play.
