Protestant

Famous quotes containing the word protestant:

    So the old flute was doomed and its fate was pathetic,
    ‘Twas fastened and burned at the stake as heretic,
    While the flames roared around it they heard a strange
    noise—
    ‘Twas the old flute still whistling ‘The Protestant Boys’.
    —Unknown. The Old Orange Flute (l. 37–40)

    There was a young lady called Alice
    Who peed in a Catholic chalice.
    The Padre agreed
    It was done out of need
    And not out of Protestant malice.
    Anonymous.

    blow as he would, though it made a great noise,
    The flute would play only ‘The Protestant Boys’.
    —Unknown. The Old Orange Flute (l. 23–24)
