Ha’ my little Boney!
What dost think of Johnny Bull now?
Plunder old England: hay?
Make French Slaves of us all! Hay?

To think that Johnny Bull would
Ever suffer those Lanthere Jaws to
Become King of Old Englands Roast
Beef & Plumpudding!

Bottom

"Buonaparte, 48 hours after landing!--Vide John Bulls home-stroke, armed en masse"
