(From Description of an Author’s Bed-chamber)

WHERE the Red Lion, staring o’er the way,
Invites each passing stranger that can pay;
Where Calvert’s butt and Parson’s black champagne
Regale the drabs and bloods of Drury Lane;
There in a lonely room, from bailiffs snug,        5
The Muse found Scroggen stretched beneath a rug.
