An Epitaph

Archie Armstrong's Banquet of Jests (1641; rpt. Edinburgh: William Paterson, 1872), p. 6:
An Epitaph.

One Mr. Dombelow died of the winde Collicke, on whom was writ this Epitaph.

Dead is Dicke Dum below.
Would you the reason know:
Could his taile have but spoken,
His stout-heart had not broken.
