A holier Priest ne'er was wrapt up in Crape;
The worst you can fay, he committed a Rape.

ÎN his Journey to Dublin, he lighted at Chester,

And there he grew fond of another Man's Wife; Burst into her Chamber, and wou'd have carest her, But Ihe valu'd her Honour much more than her

She bustled and struggled; and made her Escape,
To a Room full of Guests for fear of a Rape:

The Dean he pursu'd to recover his Game :

And now to attack her again he prepares;
But the Company stood in Defence of the Dame,
They cudgeld, and cuft him, and kickt him

down Stairs.
His Deanship was now in a damnable Scrape,
And this was no Time for commiting a Rape.

To Dublin he comes, to the Bagnio he goes,

And orders the Landlord to bring him a Whore; No Scruple came on him his Gown to expose,

"Twas what all his Life he had pra&is'd before.

For why, they had both been brought up to the

His Landlord was ready his Deanship to ape
In ev'ry Debauch, but committing a Rape.

This Protestant Zealot, this English Divine;

İn Church and in State was of Principles fourid;
Was truer than Steele to the Hanover Line,

And griev'd that a Tory should live above Grounds
Shall a Subject fo loyal be hang’d by the Nape,
For no other Crime but committing a Rape?

Br old Popis Canons, as wise Men have penn'd'em

Each Priest had a Concubine, jure Ecclefiæ;
Who'd be Dean of Ferns without a Commendam
And Precedents we can produce, if it please ye:




Then, why should the Dean, when Whores are so

t A Bishop of Waterford, fent from England a Hundred

Years ago


THE Dean he was vext that his Whores were fo

willing: He long'd for a Girl that would struggle and


He rayish'd her fairly, and fav’d a good Shilling;

But, here was to pay the Devil and all.
His Trouble and Sorrows now come in a Heap,
And hang’d he must be for committing a Rape.

If Maidens are ravilh't, it is their own Choice;

Why are they so wilful to struggle with Men? If they would but lye quiet, and ftifle their Voice,

No Devil nor Dean could ravish 'em then. Nor would there be need of a strong Hempen Cape, Ty'd round the Dean's Neck, for committing a Rape,

LL Folks, who pretend to Religion and Grace,
Allow there's a Hell, bur dispute of the

Place ;

But if Hell may by Logical Rules be defin'd The Place of the Damn'd,- I'll tell you my Mind,

WHEREVER the Damn'd do chiefly abound, Most certainly there is HELL to be found ; Damn'd Poets, Damn'd Criticks, Dama'd Block
