Epigram On the Depreciated Money

ON THE DEPRECIATED MONEY .

They may talk of the plugging and sweating
Of our coinage that's minted of gold,
But to me it produces no fretting
Of its shortness of weight to be told:
All the sov'reigns I'm able to levy
As to lightness can never be wrong,
But must surely be some of them heavy
For I never can carry them long.
