Epigram
On the Frequent Defeats of the French Army

Anon
The London Chronicle, CXIV (November 19, 1813), p. 487

The toast of each Briton in war's dread alarms,
O'er bottle or bowl, is "Success to our Arms;"
Attach'd, put to flight, and soon forc'd from each
                            trench,
"Success to our Legs," is the toast of the French.
