The Revolution War Era

AN ANCIENT PROPHECY
by Philip Freneau
(an American Revolutionary poet)

WHEN a certain great King,
     whose initial is G,
Forces STAMPS upon paper,

     and folks to drink TEA;
When these folks burn his tea

   and stampt paper, like stubble, --
You may guess that this king is then

  coming to trouble.

But when a PETITION he treads under

   feet,
And sends over the ocean an army and

   fleet,
When that army, half famish'd, and

   frantic with rage
Is coop'd up with a leader,

   whose name rhymes to cage;
When that leader goes home,

   dejected and sad;
You may then be assur'd the

   king's prospects are bad.
