PART SECOND.

CANTO THIRD.

THE ARGUMENT.

The Knight, with doubts possest,
To win the Lady goes in quest
of Sydrophel the Rosicrucian,
To know the Dest'nies' resolution;
With whom being met, they both chop logic,
About the science astrologic;
Till falling from dispute to fight,
The Conj'rer's worsted by the Knight

DOUBTLESS the pleasure is as great
Of being cheated, as to cheat;
As lookers-on feel most delight,
That least perceive a juggler's sleight;
And still the less they understand,
The more th' admire his sleight of hand.

Some with a noise, and greasy light,
Are snapt, as men catch larks by night;
Ensnar'd and hamper'd by the soul,
As nooses by the legs catch fowl.
Some with a med'cine and receipt,
Are drawn to nibble at the bait;
And tho it be a two-foot trout,
T is with a single bair pull'd out.
