L'Estrange: The Kite, Hawk and Pigeons

The Pigeons finding themselves persecuted by the Kite, made choice of the Hawk for their Guardian. The Hawk sets up for their Protector; but under the countenance of that Authority, makes more havock in the Dove-house in two Days, than the Kite could have done in twice as many months.

‘Tis a dangerous thing for People to call in a powerful and ambitious Man for their Protector; and upon the Clamour of here and there a private Person, to hazard the whole community.
