See with what Pride Britannia rears her Head!
Her Hopes are answer'd! and her Fears are fled!
Intrepid now she'll bid her Thunders roar,
And on our Coasts her direst Vengeance pour.
The Storm must be appeas'd: But how? Allure the Dutch!
In vain, I fear: Our Friends have felt too much!
Awak'd by Chesterfield, They'll Sleep no more,
But force us all our Conquests to restore.
What's to be done? Richlieu could rise to Fame,
And justly is rever'd great Maz'rine's Name.
They stood! — But if I fall, no Glory's lost,
Since all my Schemes by Chesterfield are crost!
