TO DR. F.B. ON HIS BOOK OF CHESS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sir, now unravell'd is the golden fleece
Last Line: Bluster'd and clutter'd for, you play.
Subject(s): Chess


SIR, now unravell'd is the Golden Fleece:
Men that could only fool at fox-and-geese
Are new-made politicians by thy book,
And both can judge and conquer with a look.
The hidden fate of princes you unfold,
Court, clergy, commons by your law controll'd.
Strange serious wantoning: all that they
Bluster'd and clutter'd for, you play.
