“A man who would woo a fair maid,
Should ‘prentice himself to the trade;
And study all day,
In methodical way,
How to flatter, cajole, and persuade.
He should ‘prentice himself at fourteen,
And practise from morning to e’en;
And when he’s of age,
If he will, I’ll engage,
He may capture the heart of a queen!”

“The screw may twist and the rack may turn,
And men may bleed and men may burn,
O’er London town and its golden hoard
I keep my silent watch and ward!”
