LEN. WELSTED, by his rhiming knack,
Brought many Foes upon his Back;
Long two dread Champions' Weight did feel,
M—L and MORRICE BEZALEEL:
When now, a Case most cruel hard!
Comes to their Aid the Twickenham Bard,
And at his Hand, fell Sight to meet!
A Man in Black, with cloven Feet:
What Murthers hatch'd! what Plots between
The Marmozette and dingy Dean!
But Courgage, LEN, all true Hearts hope
Thoul't scour the Devil and the POPE.
