Tis a curious fact as ever was known
In human nature, but often shown
Alike in castle and cottige,
That pride, like pigs of a certain breed,
Will manage to live and thrive on "feed"

Depend upon it, my snobbish friend,
Your family thread you c;tn't ascend,
Witlmttf tfood -reason-to anprehcnd
You may find n watotiftt the further fenuf
By some plebeian vocation !
Or, worse than that, your boasted line
May end in a loop of tronger twine
That plagued a worthy relation !

Don't be haughty and put on airs,
With ins. lent piide of station!
Don't be proud and turn up your nose,
At poorer people in plainer clothes,
but learn for the sake of your mind' repose.
That wealth's a bubble that SMM and goes!
And that all proud flesh, wherever it grows.
Is subject to irritation.
