Poems and Songs of Robert Burns

The Libeller's Self-Reproof[1]

 Rash mortal, and slanderous poet, thy name
Shall no longer appear in the records of Fame;
Dost not know that old Mansfield, who writes like the Bible,
Says, the more 'tis a truth, sir, the more 'tis a libel!

These are rhymes of dubious authenticity.-Lang.
