EXCERPT:

An envoy of the Porte Sublime,
As history says, once on a time,
Before th’ imperial German court
Did rather boastfully report,
The troops commanded by his master’s firman,
As being a stronger army than the German:
To which replied a Dutch attendant,
“Our prince has more than one dependant
Who keeps an army at his own expense.”
The Turk, a man of sense,
Rejoin’d, “I am aware
What power your emperor’s servants share.
