Advice To Caelia And Belinda.

While Strephon's Verse, with honest Rage reproves
Fat Caelia's Pride, and Tyrrel's guilty Loves:
Caelia confronted, haughty Airs forgets,
And loaded with her num'rous Thousands sweats:
Belinda's Cheeks unusual Blushes wear,
And boast a Red, as nat'ral as her Hair!
Blame not, ye Fair, the advantageous Lay,
But wish for such a Satire every Day,
So may Belinda artful Paints despise,
And Caelia sweat her Waist to shapely Size.
