They say that hashish is good for heart sickness
And is better than the wine cup & the melody of the harp
In the religion of the perfect this is not true
One drop of wine is better than the blood of 100 Bhang eaters


P 716

Hashish, they say, for every heart's pain is better,
Than winecup and wine, to the ghittern's strain, is better;
But one drop of wine than an hundred bang-eaters' blood,
By the ádept's canon abideth plain, is better.

Th 842

Hashish is better for all men's heart pains,
They say, than cup and wine to lute's soft strains;
By Law one wine drop clearly better than
A hundred bang users' blood thus remains!
