Dover Hotel
Lord Byron (1788–1824)
 
(From Don Juan)

DON JUAN now saw Albion’s earliest beauties,
  Thy cliffs, dear Dover, harbor, and hotel;
Thy custom-house, with all its delicate duties;
  Thy waiters running mucks at every bell;
Thy packets, all whose passengers are booties        5
  To those who upon land or water dwell;
And last, not least, to strangers uninstructed,
Thy long, long bills, whence nothing is deducted.
