Comments about Samuel Bishop
The Man In The Moon
THE MAN IN THE MOON.
WHAT brainsick noddle spun the tether,
That coupled Man and Moon together,
At prefent I shall not discuss:—
Suffice it, that report runs thus.
Some folks to history owe their fame:
The Man i'tH' Moon has no such claim;
But tho' so well known, and so long,
Boasts no record, but one old song;
Which tells us, how he swills his claret;
And feasts on powder'd beef, and carrot.
Why then produce his silly phiz,
If this be all, he does, or is ?—
Marry, that needs no conjurer's clue:—
Because ourselves are silly too.
