Songs of Experienceby William Blake, 1794

I wander thro' each charter'd street, t
Near where the charter'd Thames does flow.
And mark in every face I meet t
Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

In every cry of every Man, 5
In every Infants cry of fear, t
In every voice: in every ban, t
The mind-forg'd manacles I hear t

How the Chimney-sweepers cry t
Every blackning Church appalls, t 10
And the hapless Soldiers sigh
Runs in blood down Palace walls

But most thro' midnight streets I hear t
How the youthful Harlots curse
Blasts the new-born Infants tear 15
And blights with plagues the Marriage hearse
