A Royal Scolding

Important Memo to the Reigning Mayor and his Council:

Authority intoxicates,
And makes mere sots of magistrates;
The fumes of it invade the brain,
And make men giddy, proud and vain:
By this, the fool commands the wise,
The noble with the base complies,
The sot assumes the role of wit,
And cowards make the base submit.

-Butler
