1.11



Of their cardinal virtues,
I know that their hope bears a strong resemblance to their greed,
And that their faith moves never very far from prejudice,
But Caritas, even without vanity, is conditional and complex, how
     the volition might receive the subtle sights of cases deserving of
     her care.
Perhaps this, another thing of belonging,
Their charity begins at customs out, and not at home,
Because there can be none in this fair land who does not share in its
     bountys.
