BLUE BLOOD.

SPURN not the nobly born
With love affected,
Nor treat with virtuous scorn
The well connected.
High rank involves no shame—
I boast an equal claim
With him of humble name
To be respected!
Blue blood! Blue blood!
When virtuous love is sought,
Thy power is naught,
Though dating from the Flood,
Blue blood!
