Verbal Irony, although I'm not sure if this will fall within the ines of your page numbers. My text has no page numbers.

"A poor show, that - hitting this famished tramp -
Bad business, if he happened to be a god.
You know they go in foreign guise, the gods do,
Looking like strangers, turning up
In towns and settlements to keep an eye
On manners, good or bad"(
