Prince George of England, in condemning recently the prevalence of sex novels, referred to a certain modern work type of as literary gangrene.
Saint George he was for England, And he the dragon slew, Whose slimy trail fouled glen and dale Where English flowers grew. He broke a lance for England And so his fame increased, Who dared his youth to match for Truth Against the loathy beast. When English fame was sullied, When English fields were soiled. Saint George rode out of England And Beastliness was foiled. Prince George he stands for England, And he shall match a lance When, from the mire, false arts conspire To cozen ignorance. And he shall speak for England. When English minds recoil From foul unhealth that would the wealth Of English art despoil. The Georges were for England; And, be he Prince or Saint, A George shall stand for his own land To free her from the Taint.
