Quatrain of Philip III
Philip The Good
Duke of Burgundy
Walk the narrow and lonely path of foiled dreams and expunged ideas, shamefully laid bare,
Wash your hands of toil; allow your soul to drift up into a cloud of ingratiated pomp and flare.
Live the grand life, and dare Reason with your nagging unwillingness to find ethical value,
Alas! lace your childhood with a peasant's breath while drinking sweat from those who despise you
