How to cut your throat and smile ;
Like a butcher, doom’d for life In his mouth to wear a knife : Hence he draws his daily food From his tenants’ vital blood.
In him tell me which prevail, Female vices most, or male? What produced him, can you tell? Human race, or imps of Hell?
– Excerpt from T RAULUS, PART II., by Dr Jonathan Swift
