Here lies the dust of old E.P.
One instance of mortality.
Pennsylvania born, Carolina bred,
In Tennessee died on his bed.
His youthful days he spent in pleasure,
His latter days in gathering treasure.
From superstition liv'd quite free
And practiced strict morality.
To holy cheats was never willing
To give one solitary shilling.
He can foresee (and for foreseeing
He equals most of men in being),
That church and state will join their power
And misery on this country shower.
The Methodists with their camp bawling
Will be the cause of this down falling:
And not destin'd to see
He wails for poor posterity,
First fruits and tenths are odious things
And so are Bishops, Tithes and Kings.
