Whilst Monarks in stern Battels strove
Primary Text: MS Folger, 280-1.
Secondary Eds: 1713 Misc, 185-7; rpt of 1713: 1903 Reynolds, 151-3.
18C: 1709 Tonson, 133-6.
Comment: Heavy-handed laughing at some real fop out-maneuvred by a soldier just as foolish. Again Finch is writing in fable mode and has placed this half-song against the previous fable, "Reputation, Love, and Death".
