Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
By Max Nordau (Trans. J. F.)
SAID the State to the prelate your pay we will withhold.
Smiled the priest in reply, I scorn your pow’er and gold,
You use your godless might with heavy cruel hand,
But back your gifts I fling, nor care for your command,
Nor need our Church fear want; aye, money will be found.        5
And free ’twill be given—since rich Jews do here abound.
