Poem by Robert Craggs, Earl Nugent


Epigram 14. TOM thought a wild profusion great


TOM thought a wild profusion great:
And therefore spent his whole estate:
Will thinks the wealthy are ador'd,
And gleans what misers blush to hoard.
Their passion, merit, fate the same,
They thirst and starve alike for fame.
