Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Earl of Rochester
 
  Infamous as Hell.  1
Love, like other little boys,
Cries for hearts, as they for toys.
  2
  True as Heaven.  3
But obscene Words, too grosse to move Desire,
Like heaps of Fuel do but choak the Fire.
That Author’s Name has undeserved Praise
Who pall’d the Appetite he meant to raise.
