See Fierce Bigots Rise

Richard Payne Knight (1751-1824), The Landscape, II.380-387:
                                  See fierce bigots rise!      380
Faith in their mouths, and fury in their eyes;
With mystic spells and charms encompass'd round,
And creeds obscure, to puzzle and confound;
While boding prophets in hoarse notes foretell
The ripen'd vengeance of wide-gaping hell;      385
And pledging round the chalice of their ire,
Scatter the terrors of eternal fire.
