ON THE VIOLENT DEBATES IN THE HOUSE OF PEERS, UPON THE BILL FOR SUSPENDING THE HABEAS CORPUS, &c.

1 My noble Lords, your altercation
2 Can never tend to serve the nation,
3 You can't but know its laws;
4 Why then, right noble Peers, this pother,
5 As if each culprit were your brother,
6 That thus you plead their cause?
7 Prythee, my Lords, be quiet then,
8 Strive to acquit yourselves like men,
9 Who hold a sacred trust;
10 Your Church, your King, your Country calls
11 For unity within your walls,
12 For measures firm and just.
