Men would quake in their opium hearts
M A Heathcote
Men would quake in their opium hearts to meet
A beauty in whose pleasing narcotic glance
All the spheres of the primate’s earth beguile
And in who’s still doe like goddess graces dance.
Forevers shall confine in them awhile,
Her who’s tyranny it is never to maltreat:
If they espied that orbit she should reside
Nightly they would give their all too a perchance!
A gaze from her tempting eyes so sweet;
Such a wretched wantonness we do pray by chance
Such is the grandeur these angels can entreat:
Such is the zodiac all lovers over chide.
Hapless nature is not so soothe to prove
The commits graveside-plot of endless; love.
