Risk is the Hair that holds the Tun
Seductive in the Air —
That Tun is hollow — but the Tun —
With Hundred Weights — to spare —

Too ponderous to suspect the snare
Espies that fickle chair
And seats itself to be let go
By that perfidious Hair —

The “foolish Tun” the Critics say —
While that delusive Hair
Persuasive as Perdition,
Decoys its Traveller.
