Vol. III. The Eighteenth Century: Addison to Blake
 
Epigrams
By John Byrom (1692–1763)
 
IN truths that nobody can miss
It is the quid that makes the quis;
In such as lie more deeply hid
It is the quis that makes the quid.
*        *        *        *        *
God bless the King—I mean the faith’s defender!        5
God bless (no harm in blessing!) the Pretender!
But who pretender is, or who is king—
God bless us all!—that ’s quite another thing.
