THE ANGLO-AMERICAN TASTE FOR BOOKISH JEWS

 

THE ANGLO-AMERICAN TASTE FOR BOOKISH JEWS

 

They’re Republican and Protestant

And Looking for a supplicant

A little Jewish pedant

A relic of the dead Levant

 

A frail and smarmy well-read man

Who lacks the element of elan

Hews to a well-trodden plan

And never dares to say I can

 

He may be such a lovely tutor

Declaims on kings Stuart and Tudor

Their Shylock is a rude intruder

With sentiments reeking of the sewer

 

A Disraeli tends to suit their taste

A convert, unlike Gladstone chaste

The eunuch of the Queen erased

Himself and India was defaced
