Against meningitis and poisoned milk,
flash floods and heartwreck, opposed to daydreams
Against wasting your hands, consuming detergent,
earthquakes, baldness, divorce, against
falling in love with a child
Against lupus and court cases, mendacity stranded among nations,
against secrets and techniques and frostbite, the burring of trains
that by no means arrive
Against songlessness, your mother's depression,

Against those talismans opposed to lightning;
the shutters swing, and clack their yellow teeth;
the deep sky welters and the home windows quiver

Neither is it very clear, how far some People may stretch the Term of common Enemy. How many are there of those that call themselves Protestants, who look upon our Worship to be idolatrous as well as that of the Papists, and with great Charity put Prelacy and Popery together, as Terms convertible?

Their Lands are almost entirely taken from them, and they are rendered uncapable of purchasing any more; and for the little that remains, Provision is made by the late Act against Popery, that it will daily crumble away:19 To prevent which, some of the most considerable among them are already turned Protestants, and so, in all Probability, will many more. Then, the Popish Priests are all registered, and without Permission (which I hope will not be granted) they can have no Successors; so that the Protestant Clergy will find it perhaps no difficult Matter to bring great Numbers over to the Church; and in the mean Time, the common People without Leaders, without Discipline, or natural Courage, being little better than Hewers of Wood, and Drawers of Water, 20 are out of all Capacity of doing any Mischief, if they were ever so well inclined.
