Shall we now tell, how Beaus and Ladies write,
Beaus for Instruction, Ladies for Delight?
Who daily flock at Will's to be inspir'd,
Who at the Rose with generous Wine are fir'd?
Where the poor Muse pays Reck'nings with a Line,
And Barters her Divinity for Wine.
How Holy G—n in mistaken Youth,
Was led by T[illots]on the way to Truth.
How he a Christian, and a Wit became,
How Blount, and Phaeton at once Proclaim
His Muse, and his Religion, are the same?
