1 A Drunken old Scot by the rigorous sentence
2 Of the kirk was condemn'd to the stool of repentance.
3 Mess John to his conscience his vices put home,
4 And his danger in this, and the world that's to come.
5 Thou reprobate mortal; why, dost not thou know
6 Whither, after your death, all you drunkards must go?
7 Must go when we're dead? why Sir, you may swear,
8 We shall go, one and all, where we find the best beer.
