Vox Populi

When Mazarvan the Magician
  Journeyed westward through Cathay,
Nothing heard he but the praises
  Of Badoura on his way. 

But the lessening rumor ended
  When he came to Khaledan,
There the folk were talking only
  Of Prince Camaralzaman, 

So it happens with the poets:
  Every province hath its own;
Camaralzaman is famous
  Where Badoura is unknown.
