Wafteall, whose eyes were just closing

in death, Doll counted the chalks on the door ; In peace, cry'd the wretch, let me give up my

breath, And Fate will soon rub out my score.

Come, bailiffs, cries Doll, (how I'll hamper this

cheat !). Let the law be no longer delay'd, I never once heard of that fellow call's Fate,

And by G-d he shan't die 'till I'm paid.

Hether he's worth your spleen or not,

You've ask'd me to determine:
I wish my friend a nobler lot

Than that of trampling vermin.
A blockhead can't be worth our care,

Would a man of worth defame; Wit, as threadbare as his coat is, Only shews his want of Thame.

Hang yourself and paltry muse.

Should for hunger hang or drown:

Send the scribbler half a crown.
