Most of our moralists, with trite essay,
Manag'd the sickly mind, in Galen's way:
For, let the malady be what it will,
The Charlatan must scrawl a tedious bill.
Such cloying med'cines, not prepar'd with art,
Came up, before they reach'd th' affected part.
This grateful panace, with subtile pow'r,
Searches the heart, within one happy hour.
The patient, who loath'd remedies before,
Quaffs it, with greedy haste; then sighs for more.
