Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
 
Russia and the Jews
By Punch
 
O MUSCOVITE, blind is your wrath, with
  Your heel on the Israelite’s neck,
And your hand on that baleful old blade,
  Persecution, ’twere wisdom to reck.
The Pharaoh’s calm warning, Beware!        5
  Lo, the Pyramids pierce that grey gloom
Of a desert that is but a waste, by a river
  That is but a tomb,
Yet the Hebrew abides and is strong.
