"Till wrangling Science taught it noise and show, And wicked Wit arose, thy most abusive foe.

Oppress’d with argumental tyranny,
And in thy bosom lurks in Thought's disguise; Thou varnisher of fools, and cheat of all the wife !
Folly by thee lies sleeping in the breast,

Still vary shapes and dyes;
Then painted butterflies.
