EPIGRAM ON SEEING A WORTHY PRELATE GO OUT OF CHURCH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Lord pam in the church (could you think it) kneeled down
Last Line: Since god had no hand in his lordship's promotion.
Subject(s): Clergy; Priests; Rabbis; Ministers; Bishops


Lord Pam in the church (could you think it) kneeled down,
When told the Lieutenant was just come to town,
His station despising, unawed by the place,
He flies from his God, to attend on his Grace:
To the court it was fitter to pay his devotion,
Since God had no hand in his Lordship's promotion.
