Hermann-Paul, « Barbarie. Civilisation », Le Cri de Paris, n° 1900, 7/10/1899,
“The Two Emperors; Or, the Christian Czar and the Heathen Chinee.”
So one Emperor stones
His poor Israelites,
Whilst the other one owns
Even Christians have “rights,”
And, although they’re (of course) “foreign devils,”
Their peace with good-will he requites.
Which is why, I maintain
(And my language is free)
That the CZAR, though he’s vain
Of his Or-tho-dox-y,
Might learn from his Emperor cousin,
Though he’s only a Heathen Chinee!
