blehfu commented on the word hoi polloi
Our lordly style You shall not quenchWith base canaille! (That word is French.)Distinction ebbs Before a herdOf vulgar plebs! (A Latin word.)’Twould fill with joy, And madness starkThe oί πoλλoί! (A Greek remark.)One Latin word, one Greek remark, And one that’s French. - Iolanthe, Gilbert & Sullivan
