Macaronic poem about King Midas | 27-Feb-08

Remembered fragments of a poem read in a book of Macaronic poetry in the mid-1960s (but book may have been older):

Vivat a Rex in Persia Land
A potens Rex was he
Suum imperium did extend
O'er terra and o'er sea.

Red Midas habuit multum gold
Tamen he wanted plus
'Non satis est!' his constant cry
Ergo, introit fuss.

Silenus was inebrius
Id es was slightly tight
As he went vagus through the urbs
It was a tristis sight.
