The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift/Volume 18/Epigram Intended to Be Placed Under the Head of Gulliver
"HERE learn, from moral truth and wit refined,
How vice and folly have debased mankind;
Strong sense and humour arm in virtue's cause;
Thus her great votary vindicates her laws:
While bold and free the glowing colours strike;
Blame not the picture, if the picture's like."
