James Bramston
But Titus said, with his uncommon sense,
When the Exclusion Bill was in suspense:
"I hear a lion in the lobby roar;
Say, Mr. Speaker, shall we shut the door
And keep him there, or shall we let him in
To try if we can turn him out again?"
Bramston quotes
So Britainís monarch once uncovered sat,
While Bradshaw bullied in a broad-brimmed hat.
What's not devoured by Timeís devouring hand?
Where's Troy, and where's the Maypole in the Strand?
