Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Thomas Flatman
 
  Like a dog with a bottle fast tied to his tail,
Like vermin in a trap or a thief in a jail,
    Like a Tory in a bog
    Or an ape with a clog:
Such is the man who, when he might go free,
    Does his liberty lose
    For a matrimony noose,
And sells himself into captivity.
