     SONGS OF EXPERIENCE by WILLIAM BLAKE
     
     LONDON
     
     I wandered through each chartered street,
       Near where the chartered Thames does flow,
     A mark in every face I meet,
       Marks of weakness, marks of woe.
     
     In every cry of every man,
       In every infant's cry of fear,
     In every voice, in every ban,
       The mind-forged manacles I hear:
     
     How the chimney-sweeper's cry
       Every blackening church appals,
     And the hapless soldier's sigh
       Runs in blood down palace-walls.
     
     But most, through midnight streets I hear
       How the youthful harlot's curse
     Blasts the new-born infant's tear,
       And blights with plagues the marriage-hearse.
