THE PURGATORY OF SUICIDES: BOOK 7, STANZA 9, by            
First Line: When next thou passest by whitehall, look up
Last Line: Throughout thy realm -- 'queen! From the fearful past -- be wise!'
Alternate Author Name(s): Chartist, The
Subject(s): Victoria, Queen Of England (1819-1901)


When next thou passest by Whitehall, look up,
I pray thee, and remember who felt there
The fatal axe! Ay, -- look! -- nor be the dupe
Of tinselled traitors who would thee ensnare
To ease and grandeur, till -- thy People's prayer
For justice all too long delayed -- they rise
With that old heart the Stuart to despair
Drove, first, -- and, then, to vengeance! Hunger cries
Throughout thy realm -- 'Queen! from the fearful Past -- be wise!'
