A FOREIGN RULER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: He says, my reign is peace, so slays
Last Line: Invades, and drowns them all in tears.
Subject(s): Freedom; Napoleon I (1769-1821); Soldiers; Liberty


He says, My reign is peace, so slays
A thousand in the dead of night.
Are you all happy now? he says,
And those he leaves behind cry quite.
He swears he will have no contention,
And sets all nations by the ears;
He shouts aloud, No intervention!
Invades, and drowns them all in tears.
