First Line: One that should be a saint
Last Line: Pray grant us admittance, and shut out miles davies.

TO THE RT. HONBLE. THE EARL OF OXFORD

One* that should be a Saint, and one* that's a Sinner,
And one* that pays reckning but ne'r eats a Dinner,
In short Pope and Gay (as you'l see in the margin)
Who saw you in Tower, and since your enlarging,
And Parnell who saw you not since you did treat him,
Will venture it now -- you have no Stick to beat him --
Since these for your Jury, good and true men, vous-avez;
Pray grant Us Admittance, and shut out Miles Davies.
