К визиту Бени в Англию

"You are old, mr. Pope," the young man said,

"And your mind has become very bright;

Tell me why all these Muslims through England do spread
Do you think, for our land, it is right?"

"In my youth," Benedictus replied to the boy,

"I feared it would injure the blood;

But now I do think that's a proper alloy,

Why can't we mix silver and mud?"
