'So shall these slaves be king, and thou their slave; (660)
Thou nobly base, they basely dignified; (661)
Thou their fair life, and they thy fouler grave: (662)
Thou loathed in their shame, they in thy pride: (663)
The lesser thing should not the greater hide;
The cedar stoops not to the base shrub's foot, (665)
But low shrubs wither at the cedar's root.
