As I am blood, bone, marrow, passion, and feeling

And having got exceedingly drunk today

I write this poem with my head reeling

My words shine not on this poet’s page

Nor can I find any words in this present age

To explicitly explain what I want to say

Because I’ve drank more than my share this day

This is the usual method but surely not mine

Tis not the regularity of my wordy design

My friends read my works and try to control my affairs

While I care not about my own domestic cares 

The arts, at least all such as could be said

Are gently written today by my tremulously 

Frail hands!
