Johndonkey Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Thus the poor ass whose appetite has ne'erA
Known than the thistle any sweeter fareA
Thinks all the world eats thistles Thus the clownB
The wit and Mentor of the country townB
Grins through the collar of a horse and thinksC
Others for pleasure do as he for drinksC
Though secretly because unwilling stillD
In public to attest their lack of skillD
Each dunce whose life and mind all follies marE
Believes as he is all men living areE
His vices theirs their understandings hisF
Naught that he knows not all he fancies isF
How odd that any mind such stuff should boastG
How natural to write it in the PostG
