W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  Responsibilities and Other Poems.  1916.

10. The Attack on ‘The Playboy of the Western World,’ 1907


ONCE, when midnight smote the air, 
Eunuchs ran through Hell and met 
From thoroughfare to thoroughfare, 
While that great Juan galloped by; 
And like these to rail and sweat         5
Staring upon his sinewy thigh.
