    Warns: 'Shun technicals in each extreme; / Exclusive talk, whate'er the theme, / The proper boundary passes'. Observes: 'Jokes are like trees; their place of birth / Best suits them; stuck in foreign earth, / They perish in the process'. Apostrophizes 'Merriment' with the observation: 'when men entrap / Thy bells, and women steal thy cap, / They think they have trepann'd thee'. (110)
