Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
452. Epigram pinned to Mrs. Riddell’s carriage
 
 
IF you rattle along like your Mistress’ tongue,
  Your speed will outrival the dart;
But a fly for your load, you’ll break down on the road,
  If your stuff be as rotten’s her heart.
