Let venal Chroniclers pour forth their lay,
And crown Conspirators with civic bay;
To Felons Adulation's incense breathe,
And Glory's chaplet for a Traitor wreathe.
No Lecturer's smile shall e'er my genius warm;
My soul no THELWALL'S frown shall e'er alarm.
With gen'rous pride I dare my heart oppose,
For thee, O ENGLAND! to an host of foes;
Dare smile at all the terrors of the Mob;
Dare term their marks an Opposition Job;
Dare to expose the Democratic knave;
Tear Freedom's mask from FACTION'S abject slave;
'Gainst Jacobins assert the rights of Law,
The good to screen, the bad to overawe.
Immortal Britons! guard a Monarch's Throne,
Who justly thinks the People's Rights his own.
