I shall swallow, swallow you humans, humans regardless,
I’ll the lot, I’ll the lot
Yet some I might spare, yet spare: others, not.

De (Engelse) Draak
Een middeleeuwse blik op de gastronomische voorkeuren van draken.

Ik ga jullie, mensen, opslokken, opslokken -- toch!
Verzwelgen zal ik jullie, achteloos, allemaal.
Enigen zal ik sparen, misschien; anderen niet.
