And, to the largest Bone-fire riding,
They've roasted Cook already, and Paide-
On whom, in Equipage and State,
His Scare-crow Fellow-Members wait;
And March in order, two and two,
As at Thanksgivings th’us’d to do:
Each in a tatter'd Talisman,
Like Vermine in Effigie slain.

But (what's more dreadful than the rest)
'Those Bumps are but the Tail o'th' Beast,
Set up by Popish Engineers,
As by the Crackers plainly appears ;
For, none but Jesuits have a Mision,
To preach the Faith with Ammunition,
And propagate the Church with Powder,
Their Founder was a blown-up Soldier.
Those Spiritual Pioneers o'th' Whore's,
That have the Charge of all her Stores ;
Since first they faild in their Designs,
Do take in Heav'n by springing Mines;
And with unanswerable Barrels
Of Gun-powder, dispute their Quarrels :

Now takeaCourse more practicable, .

By laying Trains to fire the Rabble,
And blow us up in th' open Streets ;
Disguis'd in Kumps, like Sambenites;
More like to Ruin and Confound,
Than all their Doctrines under-ground.

Nor have they chosen Rumps amiss,
For Symbols of State Mysteries ;
| Though some suppose, 'twas but to shew

How much they scorn’d the Saints, the Few:
Who, 'cause they're wasted to the Stumps,
Are represented best by Kunps.
But Jesuits have deeper Reaches
In all their Politick Far-fetches :
And from their Coptick Priest, Kircherus,
Found out this Mystick way to jear us.
For, as the Ægyptians us’d, by Bees,
T'express their Antique Ptolomies ;
And by their Stings, the Swords they wore,
Held forth Authority and Pow'r:
Because these subtil Animals
Bear all their Int'rest in their Tails;

And when they're once impar'd in that,
Are banish'd their Well-order'd State :
They thought, all Governments were best,
By Hieroglyphick Rumps expreft.
For
as,

in Bodies Natural,
The Rump's the Fundament of all.;
So, in a Commonwealth, or Realm,
The Government is call’d the Helm :
With which, like Vessels under Sail,
They're turn’d and winded by the Tail,
The Tail, which Birds and Fishes steer
Their Courses with, through Sea and Air ;
To whom the Rudder of the Rump is
The same thing with the Stern and Compass.
This shews, how perfectly the Rump
And Commonwealth in Nature jump.
For, as a Fly, that goes to Bed,
Rests with his Tail above his Head

So in this Mungril State of ours,
The Rabble are the Supreme Powers;
That Hors'd us on their Backs, to show us
A Jadish Trick at last, and throw us.

The Learned Rabbins of the Jews
Write, there's a Bone, which they call Luez,
I'th'Rump of Man, of such a Vertue,
No force in Nature can do hurt to;
And therefore, at the last Great Day,
All th’other Members shall, they say,
Spring out of this, as from a Seed,
All sorts of Vegetals proceed :
From whence, the Learned Sons of Art,
Os Sacrum, justly stile that part.

Then what can better represent,
Than this Rump Bone, the Parliament ?
That after several rude Ejections,
And as prodigious Resurrections ;
With new Reversions of nine Livęs,
Starts up, and, like a Cat, revives?

But now, alas, they're all expir’d,
And th' House, as well as Members, fir’d,
Consum'd in Kennels, by the Rout,
With which they other Fires put out:
Condemn’d t’ungoverning Distress, .
And Paultry, Private Wretchedness;

Worse than the Devil to Privation,
Beyond all hopes of Restauration;
And parted like the Body and Soul,
From all Dominion and Controul.
We'who could lately with a Look
Enact, Establish, or Revoke;
Whose Arbitrary Nodsgave Law,
And Frowns kept Multitudes in Awe;
Before the Bluster of whose Huff,
All Hats, as in a Storm, flew off ;
Ador'd and bow'd to by the Great,
Down to the Foot-man, and Valett.
Had more bent Knees than Chappel-Mats,
And Prayers, than the Crowns of Hats;
Shall now be fcorn'd as wretchedly,
For Ruin's just aslow as high ;
Which might be fuffer'd, were it all
The Horror, that attends our Fall :
For, fome of us have Scores more large
Than Heads and Quarters can discharge,
And others who, by restless scraping,
With Publick Frauds, and Private Rapine;
