The Learned thus, and who can quite reply, Reverse the Judgment, and Retort the Lie? You reap, in armed Hates that haunt Your name, Reap what you sowed, the Dragon's Teeth of Fame: You could not write, and from unenvious Time Expect the Wreath that crowns the lofty Rhyme, You still must fight, retreat, attack, defend, And oft, to snatch a Laurel, lose a Friend! The Pity of it!

He pulled and yanked and pried and twisted, and uttered oft his battle shout, and now and then his wife assisted till finally the teeth came out. And never once while thus he pottered around my torn and mangled jowl not once, while I was being slaughtered, did I let out a single howl!

For about a month I was laid up in the British hospital at Naauwpoort, whence I was removed to Graaf Reinet gaol, and there I was confined as a criminal until the 10th of March, 1902, when after a five days' trial for murder I was acquitted.

I wonder that a true knight, like our prince, should carry such a scurvy thing in his train.
