At the memorial service for King Phillip II
We Sevillian magistrates took the best seats
And refused to vacate them even when
The Grand Inquisitor himself declared us
Excomunicate. It is sad to have lost Heaven
But we are the sons of Pride and therefore
Must honor and obey so wonderful a sire.

Late at night Jerome's lion
Visits the library on
Sixth Avenue
Standing hours on the sidewalk
Leaving when Patience, the lion to the left
Of the entrance, shakes his head slightly.
 Later, Fortitude will mutter
"Why not just ask him what he wants?"
