Yea, fearful fiends did haunt his house,
His conscience felt a hell.
His barns were fir'd, his goods consum'd,
His lands were barren made,
His cattle died within the field,
And nothing with him staid.
And, in a voyage to Portugal,
Two of his sons did die;
And, to conclude, himself was brought
To want and misery:
He pawn'd and mortgag'd all his land
Ere seven years came about;
And now at Icnght this wicked act
Did by this means come out:
The fellow that did take in hand
These children for to kill,
Was for a robbery judg'd to die,
As was God's blessed will;
Who did confess the very truth,
As here has been display'd,
Their uncle having died in jail.
Where he for debt was laid.
You that be executors made.
And overseers eke ,
Of children that be fatherless,
And infants mild and meek;
Take you example by this thing.
And give to each his right;
Lest God T\ith such like misery.
Your wicked minds requite.
Percy's belics.
