    Linda Hepner. Ignorant comment. The second Earl of Rochester/Viscount of Athlone/Baron of Adderbury fought in wars and was a was hero in the Anglo dutch war for Charles II. He wrote me truth, and brutal but real observation. His wit mind and tongue- sharp. This biography is very inaccurate and does not show him as the great and close friend of King Charles that he was. With a love hate relationship. He was a genius. A satire is the most sublime piece Of work I have ever read.

    This biography is inaccurate. John Wilmot was the 2nd Earl of Rochester http: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wilmot, _2nd_Earl_of_Rochester

    I see because he calls himself 'Lord' he gets away with language we plebs can't use on poemhunter. Out, out, brief kindle!

    at the behest of the royal society of kentucky outcasts and ecclesiastical scoundrels, let me inform the board at poem hunter that the true identity of Lord John Wilmot is none other than Joe Green, a Shakesperian scholar currently living residing in Minneapolis and wont to great excesses of debauchery visited upon his family with stupendous frequency and indirect indiscreet nomenclature. Green's collection of sexual torture instruments is all the rage in Minneapolis and he can bee seen daily at a bus stop hailing a bus in that he might be transported to his work place.

    His obvious glee at having been outed on poem hunter is like gasoline spurting from a car fire on the expressway as his thought life has preempted this very occasion for he knew my literary detective skills would reveal his true fakery and post it here. therefore he will not sue this wormly countenance who walks with an unsteady gait and rhumey eye, this outcast of ky literary society and extravagant ecclesiastical genius..

Satyr

Were I (who to my cost already am
One of those strange prodigious Creatures Man)
A Spirit free, to choose for my own share,
What Case of Flesh, and Blood, I pleas'd to weare,
I'd be a Dog, a Monkey, or a Bear,
Or any thing but that vain Animal,
Who is so proud of being rational.
The senses are too gross, and he'll contrive
A Sixth, to contradict the other Five;
