Thus poorly low!

Has many a light aërial band,
Who, all beneath his high command,

Some fire the soldier on to dare;
Some rouse the patriot up to bare

Corruption's heart.
Some teach the bard, a darling care,

The tuneful art.

"'Mong swelling floods of reeking gore,
They, ardent, kindling spirits, pour;
Or 'mid the venal senate's roar,

They, sightless, stand,
