עמוד 18 - twixt south and south-west side; On either which he would dispute, Confute, change hands, and still confute. He'd undertake to prove, by force Of argument, a man's no horse; He'd prove a buzzard is no fowl, And that a lord may be an owl, A calf an alderman, a goose a justice, And rooks committee-men and trustees. He'd run in debt by disputation, And pay with ratiocination. All this by syllogism, true In mood and figure, he would do.
עמוד 18 - ... twixt south and south-west side ; On either which he would dispute, Confute, change hands, and still confute He'd undertake to prove by force Of argument a man's no horse ; He'd prove a buzzard is no fowl, And that a lord may be an owl, A calf an alderman, a goose a justice, And rooks committee-men and trustees ; He'd run in debt by disputation, And pay with ratiocination.
עמוד 19 - Twas English cut on Greek and Latin, Like fustian heretofore on sattin. It had an odd promiscuous tone, As if h' had talk'd three parts in one ; Which made some think, when he did gabble, Th' had heard three labourers of Babel, Or Cerberus himself pronounce A leash of languages at once. This he as volubly would vent As if his stock would ne'er be spent ; And truly to support that charge, He had supplies as vast and large.

עמוד 21 - But oftentimes mistook the one For th' other, as great clerks have done. He could reduce all things to acts, And knew their natures by abstracts ; Where Entity and Quiddity, The ghosts of defunct bodies, fly ; Where truth in person does appear, Like words congeal'd in northern air. He knew what's what, and that's as high As metaphysic wit can fly...
עמוד 25 - Free-will they one way disavow, Another, nothing else allow : All piety consists therein In them, in other men all sin : Rather than fail, they will defy That which they love most tenderly ; Quarrel with mine' d pies and disparage Their best and dearest friend, plum porridge ; Fat pig and goose itself oppose, And blaspheme custard through the nose,
עמוד 19 - H' had hard words ready to show why, And tell what rules he did it by ; Else when with greatest art he spoke, You'd think he talk'd like other folk ; For all a rhetorician's rules Teach nothing but to name his tools.
עמוד 167 - The sun had long since, in the lap Of Thetis, taken out his nap, And like a lobster boiled, the morn From black to red began to turn...
עמוד 27 - So learned Taliacotius from The brawny part of Porter's Bum, Cut supplemental Noses, which Would last as long as Parent breech : But when the Date of Nock was out, Off dropt the Sympathetick Snout.
עמוד 208 - He made an instrument to know If the moon shine at full or no ; That would, as soon as e'er she shone, straight Whether 'twere day or night demonstrate ; Tell what her d'ameter to an inch is, And prove that she's not made of green cheese.
