Castlereagh's Epitaph

Castlereagh was not universally admired for his key role in the formation of a political union between Ireland and Great Britain in 1800. Among his detractors was George Gordon (Lord Byron), who is said to have written Castlereagh's epitaph:

Posterity will ne'er survey
a nobler grave than this.
Here lie the bones of Castlereagh
Stop, traveler, and piss.
