Unique and Rare English Powder Horn dated 1774 with Owner's Name and Poem

A totally unique and original English Powder Horn dated 1774 and complete with the owner's name and a hot poker branded poem.  The original owner was a certain Richard Walls of Milby, North Yorkshire.  Have no information about him but the village is so small that it would probably not be too difficult to find out who he is was via the parish records.  The poem is rather unusual and no doubt written in the vernacular of the period.  Here is what it appears to read or as I can read it!:

WHY DID JDONAS VENAS

BUT FOR THE SAKE OF SHOVE FOR SHOVE

WHY DID VENAS LOVE JDONAS

BUT FOR THE ORISALL

WHEAR NO DONE JS

RICHARD WALLS

MILBY 1774 RE

The horn has a great colour and patination and is a very characterful piece.

Condition of the Powder Horn

In excellent shape for its great age with no damage - only very minor nibbling to end of horn.
