Epitaph on a Clergyman

Here lies, who need not here be nam'd,
For Theologic Knowledge fam'd;
Who all the Bible had by rote,
With all the Comments
Calvin wrote;
Parsons and Jesuits could confute,
Talk Infidels and Quakers mute,
To every Heretick a foe;
Was he an honest man? -- So, so.
-- Poor Richard's Almanack
