Unless by way of contradiction, We style thee Britain's Benediction; Such blessings she, with liberal hand, Confers on this devoted land.
For instance, only let us mention, Some proofs of her benign intention ; The slaves she sends us o'er the deep, The bribes to cut our throats in sleep. To take our lives and scalps away, The savage Indians keeps in pay, And Tories worse, by half, than they.
Then in this class of Britain's heroes, The Tories, savage Indians, Negroes, Recorded, Arnold's name shall stand, While Freedom's blassino;s crown our land. And odious for the blackest crimes, Arnold shall stink to latest times.
