The Lascivious Lover and the Coy Lass
(From Pills to Purge Melancholy, 1707)

PISH, fye, you’re rude, Sir,
  I never saw such idle fooling;
You’re grown so lewd, Sir;
  So debauched I hate your ways;
Leave, what are you doing?        5
I see you seek my ruin,
  I’ll cry out, pray make no delay,
  But take your Hand away;
Ah! good Sir, pray Sir, don’t you do so,
Never was I thus abused so,        10
By any Man, but you alone,
Therefore, Sir, pray begone.
