King of the golden bow, by thy hot beam,
In crowds all swelt'ring I delight to stray,
To wipe from off my brow the rolling stream,
And thro' contending thousands squeeze my way;
And while I push, thy flaming glorious light
Sheds a hot courage on my raging breast;
And oft I think, before the coming night,
Thy flaming orb will broil me into rest.
The wretched suff'rers of the earth may go,
Released by me, to thy hot burning sphere;
And while I talk them to the pitch of woe,
Take care to make them taste of sorrow here.
But, oh! thy scorching sphere is too serene,
We'll preach Sedition in a hotter scene.
