The iron hand crush’d the Tyrant’s head

William Blake 1757-1827

A robin redbreast in a cage
Puts all Heaven in a rage.

Forgiveness of enemies can only come upon their repentance.

A dog starved at his master’s gate
Predicts the ruin of the state.

The iron hand crush’d the Tyrant’s head
And became a Tyrant in his stead.
