AMERICAN TAXATION.
13
Proud George, you are engaged
All in a dirty cause, A cruel war have waged
Repugnant to all laws. Go tell the savage nations
You're cruder than they, To fight your own relations
In North America.
Ten millions you've expended,
And twice ten millions more; Our riches, you intended
Should pay the mighty score. Who now will stand your sponsor,
Your charges to defray ? For sure you cannot conquer
This North America.
I'll tell you, George, in metre, If you'll attend awhile;
We've forced your bold Sir Peter From Sullivan's fair isle.
