The next Peter Bell was he Predevote like you and me To good or evil as may come; His was the severer doom,-- For he was an evil Cotter And a polygamic Potter.
For "predevote," or determined to ends beyond his knowledge, Wordsworth's Peter suffers like "you and me." Not close to faultless, among equals who might sustain the comparison, Wordsworth and his Peter Bell are said to experience the "severer doom." He means "severer," first, compared to Reynolds' parody.
