Song of the Pelagian Heresy
Wide is the difference,
My own boosing bullies, Here the round punch-bowl
Heaped to the full is. Then if some wise one
Thinks that up " yonder " Is pleasant as we are, Why—he's in a blunder. With hey cow rumble O,
Whack! populorum, Merrily, merrily men, Push round the jorum.
By Hilaire Belloc
Pelagius lived in Kardanoel,
And taught his doctrine there : How whether you went to heaven or hell,
It was your own affair ; How whether you rose to eternal joy,
Or sank forever to burn, It had nothing to do with the church, my boy,
But was your own concern.
1 From "The Four Men." 157
