Here's Corks to stop both Mouths and Ears by th' bye.
Here's Almond-oil to grease a tardy Tongue :
This makes white black, (e) This changes right to wrong.
Here's Lethe's Water, Patriot Thoughts to drown ;
Here's Briton's Magna; (h) Here's the Rights o'th' Crown.
Here's Polar Stars by which a Statesman steers ;
And here's the Lares of our mitr'd Peers.
Here's Wit; (m) Here's Learning; (n) Politics are here !
Here's Titles; (p) Pensions; (q) Grants of thousands clear.
Here's curious Salve, to Plaister Britain's Wounds ;
The present War; (t) Last Peace; which all confounds !
Here's silken Pleasure ; (w) Wilkes's cutting rod;
Here's Law: (y) Here's Gospel; (z) Here's our Senate's God !
