I, Peter, fisherman of Galilee,
In the dear Master's name, and for the love
Of His true Church, proclaim thee Antichrist,
Alien and separate from His holy faith,
Wide as the difference between death and life,
The hate of man and the great love of God!
Hence, and repent!”
Thereat the pontiff woke,
Trembling, and muttering o'er his fearful dream.
‘What means he?’ cried the Bourbon. “Nothing more
Than that your majesty hath all too well
Catered for your poor guests, and that, in sooth,
The Holy Father's supper troubleth him,”
Said Cardinal Antonelli, with a smile.
