Excerpt from The Colliers Wedding: A Poem Wou'd have their menfeful Penny fpent, With Golfips, at a Merriment: Thofe homely Females drank no Tea, Nor Chocolate, nor Ratifea They made no Vifits, law no Play, But fpun their vacant Hours away. And thus the colliers and their wives, Liv'd drunken, hone, working Lives; were very fond of one another, And always marry'd one thro' other. The Sons and Daughters of this Sort, v ere always fond of Country Sport; And all the young unmarried Fry Did firive each other to outvy And wou'd on Hopping-days be dre: Genteel, and in their very Belt Look fmart, be clean from Top to Toe, As all that -wou'd be marry'd do. So have I feen poor Fifhes caught, By curious Bait, which Men have wrought; And from their wat'ry Region bore, By fome fmall Hairs, to die on fhore; So Beauties, when 'they wou'd catch Man, Ufe ev'ry Bait that will trapan.
