“These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth’s foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling,
Took their wages and are dead.
Their shoulders held the sky suspended:
They stood and earth’s foundations stay.
What God abandoned these defended
and saved the sum of things for pay”.
