William Blake: “mind-forg’d manacles”

The serpent has lied to us from the beginning, and he is spending his latter days cast to earth pouring his wrath upon us, Rev. 12. His lies continue, increasing all the time using his servants to present his bait to hook us with lies to bring us to bell.

London

I wander thro’ each charter’d street,
Near where the charter’d Thames does flow.
And mark in every face I meet
Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

In every cry of every Man,
In every Infants cry of fear,
In every voice: in every ban,
The mind-forg’d manacles I hear

How the Chimney-sweepers cry
Every blackning Church appalls,
And the hapless Soldiers sigh
Runs in blood down Palace walls

But most thro’ midnight streets I hear
How the youthful Harlots curse
Blasts the new-born Infants tear
And blights with plagues the Marriage hearse

WILLIAM BLAKE
