Impromptu on the Late Fast
The Cambridge Intelligencer (March 8, 1794)

Strange difference, in truth! appears
    And most men think it odd,
'Twixt Bishops in the House of Peers,
    And in the House of God.

Among the Peers they gravely rise,
    And vote that War shan't cease;
But in the Church with up-turn'd eyes,
    They loudly pray for Peace.
