Matthew Prior

Matthew Prior 1664-1721


But let your friends in verse suppose
What ne’er shall be allowed in prose,
Anatomists can make it clear
The liver minds its own affair;
And parts and strains the vital juices,
Still layes some useful bile aside,
To tinge the chyles insipid tide;
Else we should want both bile and satire
And all be burst with pure good nature.
