John Keats scribbled these lines into a notebook belonging
to one of his classmates while in medical school, circa 1815, presumably as a lively
distraction from having to actually pay attention to the lecture.
Also, his parody of the holy trinity shows his already growing
departure from Christian theology.
Give me women, wine, and snuff
Give me women, wine and snuff
Until I cry out "hold, enough!"
You may do sans objection
Till the day of resurrection;
For, bless my beard, they aye shall be
My beloved Trinity.
