Domestick Troubles too I'd wisely shun,
And rather fly, like J—N, Bard of Beef!
To an aerial Citadel, well-pleas'd,
Than, in first Floor of sumptuous Shew, reside,
With Dame contentious. So, in holy Writ,
Avers the Wisdom of the wisest Man,
Hight SOLOMON, of Israel erst the King.
His Song of Songs I'd oft repeat, enraptur'd:
And oft, O C—LL, thy Circassian read,
Of Verse politest It, of Priests thy self!
