Satira’s but some pocky quean.

from Jonathan Swift – The Lady's Dressing Room on Rap Genius

Meaning

According to Jack Lynch:

Satira, the heroine of The Rival Queens by Nathaniel Lee; quean, “A worthless woman, generally a strumpet” (Johnson). Pocky suggests either smallpox or a venereal disease.

Notice the play on queen/quean: for Strephon and perhaps for Swift, there seems to be a fine line between viewing a woman as one or the other. (Related: Madonna-whore complex.)
