I have neither grain on which to be nourished
Nor grain sack which with to be clothed.
How can he who has neither food nor clothing
devote himself to learning or art?
All things will be as your heart desires,
Stipend and position will both be commanded.
That grain and sack of which you spoke - I know
You will fill a garment, and grain will fill your house.
My prince, who will be shah of land and sea,
Will be legend throughout the world for virtue.
He has shown such favor in rewarding nonsense:
Were my words reasonable, what all would there be?
