TO MR. D'URFEY, UPON HIS INCOMPARABLE BALLADS CALL'D BY HIM LYRIC ODES, by            
First Line: Thou cur, half french, half english breed
Last Line: And pindar beat thy brains out.
Subject(s): D'urfey, Thomas (1653-1723); Hate


Thou Cur, half French, half English Breed,
Thou Mungrel of Parnassus,
To think tall Lines, run up to Seed,
Should ever tamely pass on.

Thou write Pindaricks, and be damn'd!
Write Epigrams for Cutlers;
None with thy Lyricks can be shamm'd
But Chamber-Maids and Butlers.

In t' other World expect dry Blows;
No Tears can wash thy Stains out;
Horace will pluck thee by the Nose
And Pindar beat thy Brains out.
