The Lady's Dressing Room

HideShow resource information
Five Hours (and who can do it in less?)
By haughty Celia spent in Dressing.
1 of 11
On such a Point few Words are best
And Strephon bids us guess the rest
2 of 11
Ointments good
for scabby chops
3 of 11
But oh! It turned poor Strephon’s Bowels
When he beheld and smelt the Towels
4 of 11
Begummed, bemattered
and beslimed
5 of 11
The smallest Worm in Celia’s Nose,
And faithfully direct her Nail/ To squeeze it out from Head to Tail
6 of 11
As from within Pandora’s Box
When Epimetheus op’d the Locks
7 of 11
Disgusted Strephon stole away/ Repeating in his amorous Fits
Oh! Celia, Celia, Celia shits!
8 of 11
I pit wretched Strephon blind
To all the charms of female kind
9 of 11
If Strephon would but stop his Nose …
He soon would learn to think like me
10 of 11
Such Order from Confusion sprung
Such gaudy Tulips raised from Dung
