TO MR. HOBHOUSE, ON HIS IMPRISONMENT IN NEWGATE.

TO MR. HOBHOUSE, ON HIS IMPRISONMENT IN NEWGATE.

What made you in Lob's Pound to go,
My boy, Hobby?
Because I bade the people throw
The house into the lobby.
You hate the house--why canvass then,
My boy Hobby?
Because I would reform the den,
As member for the mobby.
And who are now the people's men,
My boy, Hobby?
There's I and Burdett, gentlemen,
And blackguards Hunt and Cobby.
And when amid your friends you speaks,
My boy, Hobby,
How is 't that you contrive to keep
Your watch within your fubby!
Now tell me why you hate the Whigs,
My boy, Hobby!
Because they want to run their rings
As under Walpole Boddy.
