Irish Antiquities Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


According to some learned opinionsA
The Irish once were CarthaginiansA
But trusting to more late descriptionsA
I'd rather say they were EgyptiansA
My reason's this the Priests of IsisA
When forth they marched in long arrayB
Employed 'mong other grave devicesA
A Sacred Ass to lead the wayB
And still the antiquarian tracesA
'Mong Irish Lords this Pagan planC
For still in all religious casesA
They put Lord Roden in the vanC
