  ON BUTLER'S MONUMENT  

While Butler, needy wretch, was yet alive,
No generous patron would a dinner give.
See him, when starved to death and turn'd to dust,
Presented with a monumental bust.
The poet's fate is here in emblem shown--
He ask'd for bread, and he received a stone.

                                                     Rev. Samuel Wesley.
