“ I may with these dew men difpenfer; 2

The people pray'd him, but in vain: 1 To keep his mop to fave his grain: sincs The birds and insects were not fled, linA Frighten'd they were, but notiyet dead. T “ Pooh! pooh li says he) they'll ne'er return; “ A scare-crgw now will serve my turn; " Which will, all weathers keep its placey. And fright them with its horrid face, si

A scare-crow.now was all the tong
A scare-crow Hill to, wag its stongues
Upon a piyac made to fand. ':' ,,'
And turn about to every hand :ul's
Still to rattle, till to flutter,

1*
And keep an everlasting sputter. !!!
The figure's made, compleatly dress’d, i
In party colour'd coat and veft: 1735 inie
And 'tis polite in all it does, 13:21 »
For still with every wind it goes.
Ribbons o'er its breast are spread ;
And fill ic bows and nods its head :
Never sure was scare-crow made
More fit, in visage, for its trade;
And much fine promise did it give,
For who could see his face and live i
The scare-crow, though in look so civil,
Seem'd to the birds a very devil ;
Like old king Log preserv'd its sway,,; .17, -*-
And kept them for a time away ;
But soon they saw, for all its lure,
The creature had not any pow'r :
It made indeed a deal of dia ;
But still there wanted that within,
Which birds, like mortals, truly know,
Surpasses outside grin and shew.
It held a parchment in its hand,
The emblem of fupreme command :
This it ever brandish'd high ;
And, from the pent house of its eye,
Shot darts of murd'rous hate, or guile,
On those who did not heed its smile.
All these contortions, this grimace,
And all this happy power of face,
Nature to man could ne'er impart ;
'Twas mechanism all, and art.

So bave we feen, in fashion's fchoot, " A creature bred to be a tool, i And train'd to scrape and smile by rule, Behind a counter taught to prate, .. To deal in lace or rule a ftate.

The birds and infects soon perceiv'd in From danger they were now reliev'd..." Soob their havoc they'resum'd,')!. And half the harveft they confum'd... " The feare-crow made a fufs in vain, wi"" They pack'd away the choiceft grain; The rice, the wbient, the barley yields; They ftripp'd not less than thirty fields. 1

«« I'm punih'd now, (the fwmer cries) « For being ungrateful and anwife. "7 • Had I my former servants kept, si « My meadows had not thus beon Atripp'd :

But down with this vile (care-chow Twins * And let us keep what litde's left.
