Vox Populi


    When Mazarvan the Magician,
        Journeyed westward through Cathay,
    Nothing heard he but the praises
        Of Badoura on his way.

    But the lessening rumor ended
        When he came to Khaledan,
    There the folk were talking only
        Of Prince Camaralzaman,

    So it happens with the poets:
        Every province hath its own;
    Camaralzaman is famous
        Where Badoura is unknown.
