Found in ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ by Jonathan Swift

 

Time

At a time
very loose and incorrect
the brutes
prevailed

giving offence,
monstrous:
yahoos in England,
creatures

feared.
Our composition,
the academy of the herd,
successively inserted

people in power
being in esteem
and especially at a
detestable time.

 

.

Corrupt

Men are ennobled
for their wisdom

eluding them.
But by what those

admirable
little
odious
vermin

perfect toward
procurement

I cannot but conclude
corruption.
