The Marquis Scotland Epitaph

On a person nicknamed 'The Marquis', who asked Burns to write an epitaph for him. 'The Marquis' was a keeper of a respectable public house, in Dumfries, and the alley in which the inn was situated was called 'The Marquis's Close'.

Here lies a mock Marquis whose titles were shammed,
If ever he rise, it will be to be damned.
