Benjamin Franklin

From bad Health, bad Conscience, & Parties’ dull Strife
From an insolent Friend, & a termagant Wife,
From the Kindred of such (on one Side or t’other)
Who most wisely delight in plaguing each other;
From the Wretch who can cant, while he Mischief designs,
From old rotten Mills, bank’d Meadows & Mines;
From Curses like these if kind Heav’n defends me,
I’ll never complain of the Fortune it sends me.
