LX

THE SENATE OF A GOOD PRINCE


Men without hands
sit before the blind prince.
The wise of Egypt said
this is the best form of government.
They sit with tranquil minds.
They have no hands
so they can accept no bribes.
And the prince is blind,
so the Senate can carry out
his commands by ear alone.
