# Grave the sentence deep. My love of London held in torment.
# Heavy, rains of cruelty, disguised in spectacular investments.
# Accumulate interest in Jealousy,Terror and Secrecy.
# The bloated Square mile
# Gifts this isle.

# In this citys dark gates - the tree of knowledge leads to this mansion built on misery.
# Here the dress code of secrecy cloaks the flesh in fear.
# This is how the proprietary city gets built,
# Hidden in every proprietary street,
# In every proprietary house,
# In every proprietary possession we meet.

# London - Simple Act Redress
# The American War was the last judgment on England.
# Inoculated against the sewer. Albion's Angels
# Rise up on wings of iron & steel, spreadsheet & rule:
# To gift sanitation & sulphurous fire to:
# The wheat of Europe,
# The rice of Asia,
# The potato of America,
# The maize of Africa.
# Massacre-bloated, angels crawl from the corpse of war.
# Five times fatter than when they entered.

# Choking lays the sickening Leveller-republican. Caustic fumes - dusts,
# gust from wars - grinding wheels - mills of cruelty - mills of terror, jealousy & secrecy.
# Every light ray turned to shadow and despair. to rikets - scabies - ticks & lice.
# Until the dark sun never set on the Hanoverian empire.
# Rise then the Leveller-republic, rise on wings of knowledge flowing in the domain of the many.
# For heaven is more knowledge then one man can muster in a lifetime.
# For hell is more knowledge then one man can muster in a lifetime.

# This Library is for redressing the gross loss to Londons Imagination of children
# beaten enslaved fucked and exploited to death from 1792 to the present.
# We see this loss in every face marked with weakness or marked with woe.
