WHENCE, fairest Lady, whence this fulsome praise-
Of Bonaparte, in the land of Beys ;
Sure tyrant Love, with his envenom'd dart,
Who reigns despotic o'er the female heart,
Has pierc'd you through, usurp'd your freeborn mind,
And made you thus to all his vices blind.
Now tho' Love tyrannize with pleasing sway,
Making all hearts most willingly obey,
And at his shrine a grateful homage pay ;
Except the little God, mankind will own,
They ne'er could brook a tyrant on a throne.
From tyranny recoiling, till they feel
A deadly hatred ev'ry sinew steel.
As the scar'd trav'ler, who within a brake,
Sees the expanded jaws of some huge rattle snake.
