Arise, arise," Sir Erskine cries, "The rebels — more's the pity! Without a boat, are all afloat And rang'd before the city. "The motley crew, in vessels new, W i t h Satan for their guide, Sir, Pack'd up in bags, and wooden kegs, Come driving down the tide, Sir. " The royal band now ready stand, All rang'd in dread array, Sir, On every slip, in every ship, For to begin the fray, Sir. The cannons roar from shore to shore, The small arms make a rattle; Since wars began I'm sure no man E'er saw so strange a battle.

Where the huge heap lies center'd in the hall, The lamp suspended from the cheerful wall, Brown corn-fed nymphs, and strong hard-handed beaux. Alternate rang'd, extend in circling rows, Assume their seats, the solid mass attack; The dry husks rustle, and the corn-cobs crack; The song, the laugh, alternate notes resound, And the sweet cider trips in silence round. The laws of Husking ev'ry wight can tell; And sure no laws he ever keeps so well: For each red ear a general kiss he gains, W i t h each smut ear she smuts the luckless swains; But when to some sweet maid a prize is cast, Red as her lips, and taper as her waist, She walks the round, and culls one favor'd beau, W h o leaps, the luscious tribute to bestow.
