It may be nothing of a sort more noisy
Than a small oblivion of component ashes
That of a dream-addicted world was once
A moving atomy much like your friend here?"
Nothing will help that man. To make him laugh,
I said then he was a mad mountebank, -- 
And by the Lord I nearer made him cry.
I could have eat an eft then, on my knees,
Tail, claws, and all of him; for I had stung
The king of men, who had no sting for me,
And I had hurt him in his m...Read More

by Milton, John
Advise thee; gain them as thou canst, or not.
And thou thyself seem'st otherwise inclined
Than to a worldly crown, addicted more
To contemplation and profound dispute;
As by that early action may be judged,
When, slipping from thy mother's eye, thou went'st
Alone into the Temple, there wast found
Among the gravest Rabbies, disputant
On points and questions fitting Moses' chair,
Teaching, not taught. The childhood shews the man, 
As morning shews the day. Be famou...Read More

by Cowper, William
...A poet's cat, sedate and grave
As poet well could wish to have,
Was much addicted to inquire
For nooks to which she might retire,
And where, secure as mouse in chink,
She might repose, or sit and think.
I know not where she caught the trick--
Nature perhaps herself had cast her
In such a mould [lang f]philosophique[lang e],
Or else she learn'd it of her master.
Sometimes ascending, debonair,
An apple-tree or lofty pear,

When all the warnings say I shouldn’t but who’s to judge

The deserving from the addicted?

...w that came at the end of his reign 
Were a well-deserved gift from the lads.

For William were cunning and cruel, 
Addicted to every vice
He'd bluster and perjure and ravage and murder, 
Apart from all that... he weren t nice.

He'd two brothers called Robert and Henry, 
One older, one younger than he,
And by terms of the Will of old Conqueror Bill 
The estate had been split into three.

Thus William became King of England; 
And Normandy...Read More
