Now o'er one half the world nature seems dead
And wicked drinks abuse the troubled sleep.
Brewcraft celebrates jovial Bacchus' offering
And the wetted sot, alarmed by his flagon showing bottom,
Howls at his watch, and with the drunkard's staggering steps
Toward the barrel moves like a goat.
Oh, thou sure and firm-set Earth, hear not my steps
Which way they wend for fear the very stones come up and meet me!

(A bung is started.)

I go, and it is done. The cup invites me.
Drink it down, Duncan, for it is a knell
That calls you to imbibe in something swell!
