A FABLEA
-
When beasts by words their meanings could declareB
Some well dressed men and women did repairB
To gaze upon two monkeys at a fairB
-
-
And one who was the spokesman in the placeC
Said in their countenance you might plainly traceC
The likeness of a withered old man's faceC
-
-
His observation none impeached or blamedD
But every man and woman when 'twas namedD
Drew in the head or slunk away ashamedD
-
-
One monkey who had more pride than the otherE
His infinite chagrin could scarcely smotherE
But Pug the wiser said unto his brotherE
-
-
'The slights and coolness of this human nationF
Should give a sensible ape no mortificationF
'Tis thus they always serve a poor relation '-
