'A Description of a City Shower', first published in the 1710 collection of the Tattler magazine.

Threat'ning with Deluge this devoted Town.

Now from all Parts the swelling Kennels flow,

And bear their Trophies with them as they go:

Filth of all Hues and Odours seem to tell

What Street they sail'd from, by their Sight and Smell.

They, as each Torrent drives, with rapid Force,

From Smithfield or St. Pulchre's shape their Course,

And in huge Confluent join'd at Snow-Hill Ridge,

Fall from the Conduit, prone to Holbourn-Bridge.

Sweeping from Butchers Stalls, Dung, Guts, and Blood,

Drown'd Puppies, stinking Sprats, all drench'd in Mud,

Dead Cats and Turnip-Tops come tumbling down the Flood.
