Epitaph On Judge Boat

Here lies Judge Boat within a coffin,

Pray, gentlefolks, forbear your scoffin';

A Boat a judge! yes, where's the blunder

A wooden Judge is no such wonder!

And in his robes you must agree,

No Boat was better dekt than he.

'Tis needless to describe him fuller,

In short he was an able sculler.
