EPIGRAM ON A CAPTAIN GROSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The devil got notice that grose was a-dying
Last Line: "I'll want him, ere I take such a damnable load!"
Subject(s): Antiques; Grose, Francis (1731-1791)


The Devil got notice that Grose was a-dying
So whip! at the summons, old Satan came flying;
But when he approached where poor Francis lay moaning,
And saw each bed-post with its burthen a-groaning,
Astonish'd, confounded, cries Satan -- "By God,
I'll want him, ere I take such a damnable load!"
