Trying to identify a line of poetry - possibly written by an Irishman - that goes something like "a face marked by a lifetime of venal sin".

When Father Beese quoted it to me, apropos of having seen Ted Kennedy in an airport, I thought he attributed it to Dylan Thomas. Or maybe Seamus Haney. But I'm really not sure.
