The witch is astride this night for a ride,
Old Satan and she together;
Now out and now in,
Thru thick and thru thin,
No matter what be the weather.

Epigram on Two Monopolists

Bone and Skin, two Millers thin,
Would starve us all, or near it;
But be it known to Skin and Bone
That Flesh and Blood can’t bear it.

— John Byrom.
