POETS CO RN ER, . - . ... A a 1. A' His Bi YAr CANONICAL QUIBBLER. N Abbot rich (whofe Tafle was good. Alike in Science and in I - ood) H;s Bifhop had refolv'd to treat ; The Bifhop came, the Bifhop cat j 'Twas Silence, til) their Stcro.v.hs fail'd, And now at Hercticks they rail'd. What Herefy (the Prelate faid) Is in that Church where Pricfts may wed ! Do not we take the Church for Life ? But thot'e divorce her for a Wife ; Like Laymen keep her in their Houfes, And own the Children of their Spoufe. Vile Practices ! the Abbot cry'd, For pious Ufe we're fet afide. Bhall we t.ik Wives ? Marriage, at heft, Is but Carnality profefs'd. Now, as the Bifhop took his Glafs, He fpy'd our Abbot's buxom Lafs, Whocrofs'd the Room; he mark'd her Eye, That glow'd with Love; his Puli'e beat high. Fie, Father, fie (the Prelate cries) A Maid fo young ! for Shame, be wife. Thcfe Indifcretior.s lend a Handle To lewd Lay Tongues, to give us Scandal ; For your Vows Sake, this Rule I give t'ye, ' Let all vour Maids be turn'd of fifty. The Prisft reply'd, I have not fwerv'd, Cut your chafle Precept well obferv'd i That Lafs full twenty five has told ; I've yet another who's as old ; Into one Sum their Ages eaft ; So both my Maids have fifty part. The Prelate fmil'd, but durll not blame i For why ? His Lordfhip did the lame. Let thofe who reprimand their Brothers Firtl mend t!ie Faults they find in others.
