Two Men
Edwin Arlington Robinson

There be two men of all mankind
 That I should like to know about;
But search and question where I will,
 I cannot ever find them out.

Melchizedek he praised the Lord,
 And gave some wine to Abraham;
But who can tell what else he did
 Must be more learned than I am.

Ucalegon he lost his house
 When Agamemnon came to Troy;
But who can tell me who he was --
 I'll pray the gods to give him joy.

There be two men of all mankind
 That I'm forever thinking on:
They chase me everywhere I go, --
 Melchizedek, Ucalegon.
