1 IT blew an hard storm, and in utmost confusion
2 The sailors all hurried to get absolution;
3 Which done, and the weight of the sins they'd confess'd,
4 Was transfer'd, as they thought, from themselves to the priest
5 To lighten the ship, and conclude their devotion,
6 They toss'd the poor parson souse into the ocean.
