Cold butter'd bread's à nasty thing,
And heavenly azure tints the cloudless sky,
Of printing and printers we've long had fair proof,

Hot toast is nastier still!
Whose correction makes ignorant pride stand aloof;
And dances on the wave Joy's buoyant ark,

Then, how to pass the time away
On the rack we will batter each slavish opinion,
Mocking the destinies, a hideous train;

Till dinner, there's the doubt; And chase the base columns of Folly's dull minion.

You're hot if you stay in the house,
And but alone when roars the tempest loud,
At war and its myrmidons cannon still point,

You're hot if you go out.
And Misery lights her torch to fire the brain,
May piece-work still furnish its point and good joint;

And after dinner what to do,
And angry winds do lash the billows proud;
May the wielders of pikes find in pica a trimmer,

Not knowing where to move:
Then, then alone, to creep with sluggard pace,
And long shots be exploded by fire of long primer.

The gentlemen are hot below, And weeping liours, to ages, reckless swell; of press and press-warrants, our nation's disgrace,

The ladies hot above. Our press has long striven the shame to erase: · And, all forgetting thy allotted race,

And now the kettle comes, full trotMay the freedom from press be our tar's fond delight, Linger, like measured toll of passing bell?

That's not the way to cool one; And the freedom to press be the printer's proud right.

Tea makes an empty stomach hot,
Strange, so to scorn the bower where roses blow,
To press! what parenthesis gape in the word

But botter still a full one.
And love “the blasted heath," and couch of woe!
