But fame is theirs - and future days
On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise;
Shall tell - when cold neglect is dead -
"These for their country fought and bled."
If nothing once, you nothing lose,
For when you die you are the same;
The space between is but an hour,
The frail duration of a flower.
Tobacco surely was designed
To poison, and destroy mankind.
They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.
Jesus would never use government surrogates to force the people to help others.
Red serpents, fiery forms, and yelling hags, Fit company for mad adventurers.
And long shall timorous fancy see The painted chief, and pointed spear, And Reason's self shall bow the knee To shadows and delusions here.
They saw their injured country's woe.
At sea let the British their neighbours defy —
The French shall have frigates to traverse the sky.
