Benjamin Franklin

Nigh neighbour to the squire, poor Sam complain’d
Of frequent wrongs, but no amends he gain’d.
Each day his gates thrown down; his fences broke;
And injur’d still the more, the more he spoke;

At last, resolv’d his potent foe to awe,
A suit against him he began in law;
Nine happy terms thro’ all the forms he run,
Obtain’d his cause—had costs—and was undone.
