After Seeing Too Many Political Ads on TV

John Oldham (1653-1683), The Careless Good Fellow, lines 1-6:
A plague of this fooling and plotting of late,
What a pother and stir has it kept in the State;
Let the rabble run mad with suspicions and fears,
Let them scuffle and jar, till they go by the ears;
  Their grievances never shall trouble my pate,
  So I can enjoy my dear bottle at quiet.
Édouard Manet, Le Bon Bock
