Is it lawful to give Tribute to Cæsar?
Richard Crashaw (G.) (c. 1613–1649)
 
MARK XII. 14.

AFTER so many battles with the Scribes, O Lord,
Cæsar himself comes; Cæsar with his sword.
They fight not arm’d with Cæsar’s sword indeed;
But Cæsar as their sword with craft they plead.
Conquered thyself, O Cæsar, make it known—        5
Who save thee, worthy so to be o’erthrown.
