The Maids ansvver to the / Batchelors Ballad. / Or, Love without Remedy. / Thou Scriber! unto whom the Vulgar crew, / Gives small applause, yet more then is thy due; / Whose Brazen Brow, a wither'd Wreath adorns, / Which better wou'd become a pair of Horns: / Know we contemn thee: thy Malicious Pen / Can have no influence on the minds of men: / In our dispraise, in vain thou seek'st to write, / True, thou mayst shew thy teeth, but canst not bite. / Alas! rude Boy; Love is a generous pain, / Which minds ignoble, cannot entertain: / Therefore thy accusations are unjust, / In giving Love the Character of Lust.
