Gateway to the Classics: A Moral Alphabet by Hilaire Belloc
A Moral Alphabet by  Hilaire Belloc

Z For Zebu

Z for this zebu,


who (like all Zebus)

Is held divine by scrupulous Hindoos.

(Von Kettner writes it "Zebu"; Wurst "Zebu";

I split the difference and use the two.


Idolatry, as you are well aware,

Is highly reprehensible. But there,

We needn't bother,—when we get to Z

Our interest in the Alphabet is dead.
