Treasure Island

Jane Austen

(16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817 / Hampshire, England)

Of A Ministry Pitiful, Angry, Mean


Of a Ministry pitiful, angry, mean,
A gallant commander the victim is seen.
For promptitude, vigour, success, does he stand
Condemn'd to receive a severe reprimand!
To his foes I could wish a resemblance in fate:
That they, too, may suffer themselves, soon or late,
The injustice they warrent. But vain is my spite
They cannot so suffer who never do right.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
