Humbly addressed to his Worship the Lord Mayor,

§ WHEN you, my Lord, Grecain the civic seat,
Brimful of business as an egg of meat;
When you alone reign Monarch absolute,
O’er swords, eggs, case-knives, justice, spurs, and fruit;
When you, like scare ctow, hunt from all the stalls,
Regencrate Acth that, with new vigour crawls;
When Chine the task atlias to afford
Repafts, to cram the Aldermanic Board;
That damo'd Charybdis, whose enormous paunch
Diftends with custard, turtle, venison haunch,
Filh, foal, and fauces, jellies, fjups, sagouts,
Blanc-maage, polloni, fricasees, and fewsj.
Till all furcharg'd, like Maelstrom's greedy food,
The fated moniter disembogues its food;
And bloated Aldermen, with doughy knllo,
Decp mouth'd,“ dew-lapped, like ThefTalian bulls,"
Piled chcek-by-jole, in snoring clusters lie,
Like frok.nipt grunters huddling in a stye;
When you, my Lord, these coilsome duties know,
“ Curl be the verse how smooth soe'er it flow,"
Whose long preamble can detain your time,
When knives and forks in sweet copenedance join ;
Whose crabbed longitude of words* pose
The fpecs, broad saddled on your worship's nose:
So now fall tao, left expectation starve
Short grace! keen stomachs! and a ramp to carve !

From climes where grease-anointed beaux behold
Broad bottom'd beauty caft in Cheshire mould,
Who prize not rosy cheeks and smiling lips,
But the broad plenitude of brawny hips;
Where, Aurh d 'wich modefty, the swarthy fair .,'
Buudle their bulk of graces « en arriere
Fresh from there realms the beauteous Sargce cames
Blefs'd with that huge preponderance of frame,
Which, like the Catapulta's direful crash,
The frozen ramparts of thc brcad can imala.
