Note 7, Pierce Egan And George W.M. Reynolds


R.E. Prindle

I think there can be but little doubt that George W. M. Reynolds read and was influenced by Pierce Egan’s 1922 rambling Life In London and Real Life In London, perhaps even to Egan’s Finish To The Adventures Of Tom And Jerry.  There certainly seems to be a strong influence.

Pierce Egan was born in London, lived there all his life.  His years were 1772 to1849. One wonder if Reynolds met him.  He began his life as a compositor for a printer.  He was also a rambler who was soon attracted to the sporting life, especially boxing.  In the printing business he took up sports, that is boxing, writing.  He composed a multi-volume history of boxing in Britain titled Boxiana.  It was a success and to some extent still is.  From there he turned to write as a social critic and expositor.  He then established a monthly magazine titled Life In London in 1920 that was a major success and from which evolved his great book successes Life In London and Real Life In London.

Egan’s style is discursive.  The sub-title to Life In London is: The Day And Night Scenes Of Jerry Hawthorne, Esq.’ And His Elegant Friend Corinthian Tom; that of Real Life In London: The Further Rambles and Adventures Of BobTallyho  And His Cousin, The Hon. Tom Dashall.  Both books were culled from his magazine writings.

The general idea is that Corinthian Tom  introduces the country relative Jerry Hawthorne  and/or Tom Dashall, Bob Tallyho, to the delights of the great metropolis of London.  Life both high and low but mainly low.  On the one hand the books are a catalog of London sights and characters and on the other a dictionary of slang.  Egan professing that no Man of the world or Man About Town can be accomplished without knowing both. That is, only two mental states. The books were bibles for men hoping for those distinctions.

In those respects, Reynolds shows Egan’s influence most notably in his magnificent Mysteries Of London which is a more novelistic version of Life In London and Real Life.  Life In London is really a sort of tour book with Corinthian Tom as a guide.  Egan’s influence on Reynolds is most pronounced.

For myself, the value of Egan’s works is more historical than literary.  One might compare these books of Egan with the mid-twentieth century guide books of Jack Lait and Lee Mortimer’s Confidential series: New York Confidential, Chicago Confidential, etc., or even John Gunther’s Inside series:  Inside USA, Inside Europe etc.  Corinthian Tom and Tom Dashall are merely fictional guides to depictions of real life situations.

Hence, without a reader’s interest, that is, wishing a conductor for one’s own literary rambles, the books can get tedious.  As explanations about much of what Reynolds is writing about they are invaluable.

Pierce Egan, and somewhat with Reynolds, is an underworld character, perhaps not unlike the US chronicler of twenties era New York City, Damon Runyon.  Runyon took up his station in the heart of New York’s Satan’s Square Mile, 42nd and Broadway, where he hobnobbed with the actual criminals of New York even becoming an ex-officio member of the Mob.

In Egan’s and Reynold’s instance they chronicle to some extent the doings of London street gangs and characters  as a continuation of Duke Wharton’s gang called the Mohocks of the times of Queen Anne and George I.  Corinthian Tom, for instance, is an 1820’s example of Duke Wharton.

But, Egan is a very literate guy, in the knowledge of the Man About Town.  He knows his national English literature, art (that is pictures), the sporting world, entertainment and all the areas of London, most particularly the East End.  He knows of places and events that he considers essential knowledge for a Man About Town or Man of the World.  Ignorance of these informations would disqualify a would be Man About Town.  Only the most riotous and I might say, depraved, might need to know.

It would be one’s misfortune to be introduced to these sewers.

Reynolds may have thought so too as his character of Lady Saxondale from The Crimes Of Lady Saxondale, Series III of the Mysteries Of The Court Of London, is involuntarily made miserable by her unwilling introduction to such scenes of depravity.  Both Egan and Reynolds can casually present to the reader what is actually some pretty scary stuff, almost a species of horror fiction.  Damon Runyon was also expert at disguising the horror.


Egan as a rambler throughout London’s districts gives excellent accounts of the East End Slums as well as tours of notable buildings while identifying the many attractions of the city.  We read elsewhere of Vauxhall without ever having a detailed idea of what the attraction of the Vauxhall Gardens were.  The Gardens were an extensive amusement park comparable perhaps to an eighteenth and nineteenth century Disneyland.  Originally conceived as an elite amusement park it degraded over the decades into what amusement parks do, fairly low life places.

Egan provides a solution to the absence of our knowledge and if not the earliest to do so certainly near the top of the line.

A little later beginning in 1841 Charles Knight, who had been publishing in magazine form began issuing his six volumes of essays under the title: London.  By several hands, his volumes present extended essays on sites and customs.  For instance, in addition to Vauxhall, a nice essay on the history of the Spitalfields district and many others.  One imagines that Reynolds was familiar with the work while it might have provided much needed historical backgrounds to his seemingly profound knowledge of the sights and neighborhoods of London.

Another good source is the Peter Quennell edited volumes written by Henry Mayhew from 1851-62.  Rather late for Reynold’s use while by 1851 Reynolds’ personal knowledge of London and environs was nearly complete. In 1854 he would remove to Herne Bay in Kent thus losing close contact with London.

But as an example on what to expect at Vauxhall, this short quote taken from the Folio Society edition of Mayhews work, London, Characters And Crooks: page 280.  By the time this was written Vauxhall was no longer an elite retreat.


Both my girls are under eight years of age, and they do stilt waltzing and the oldest does the tight rope business as well.  Their mother was a tight rope dancer, and she does the same business as Madame Sayin used to appear on, such as the ascension on the rope in the midst of fireworks.  We had men in England who had done the ascension before Madame Sayin came out at Vauxhall, but I think she was the first woman that ever did it in this country.  I remember her well.  She lodged at a relative of mine during her engagement at the Gardens.  She was a ugly little woman, very diminutive, and tremendously pitted with the small-pox.  She was what may be called a horny woman, very tough and bony.  I remember my father and mother say she had 20 pounds a night at Vauxhall, and she did it three times a week; but I can’t vouch for this, as it was only hearsay.


There’s a fine little novel to be made of that.  Vauxhall perhaps might be compared to Disneyland.  You can see how popular Vauxhall was, even in decline, by Madame Sayins’ take of perhaps 60 pounds a week.  If she had kept that up for fifty-two weeks that would have been over 3,000 pounds a year.  She’d have been the envy of many a second or third son of the nobility.

And then, like Reynolds, influenced by Egan, explained the argot of the East End and all the scams and ploys to look out for.  I’ve read two dozen or more of Reynolds now but I don’t remember him ever discussing institutions such as the British Library or Somerset House with its display of paintings.

Egan was a little of the sycophant, not a criticism in his circumstances, dedicating his Life In London to King George IV. I’m sure the King would have enjoyed it with his predilictions Egan had been invited to an audience with the King George at Carlton House on an occasion.  He spends several pages lovingly describing what he considers the wonders of the palace.

George Reynolds, who wrote extensively on George IV in his Mysteries Of The Court Of London had never been in Carlton House, while George IV, who became king in 1820, died in 1830 when the young sixteen year old Reynolds running from the law escaped England for France.  Thus, he would have had to rely on histories and accounts such as Egan’s to portray the Regent and Regency.

I think if I were to choose a time to live it would be Regency England and the 1840s.  Only, however, if I were the first son of a Duke with 10,000 a year.  Egan’s Corinthian Tom, who was rich, had the right idea: see and observe but stay away from the gambling hells.  Egan doesn’t portray them nearly as much Reynolds.

    By your dress sir and general demeanor; I’d say you were a minister of God…

            I do not have a Facebook; subjecting Myself to “censors” represents an unseemliness of the highest magnitude.

            Well; as they say; imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    It is interesting; the devices needed to remember those that followed William Henry Harrison but preceded James Buchanan…

    Here is the trick to recall the five obscurities:

    Sort of like working in a haberdashery; just as Truman intended!

  4. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    The rules of modern boxing were developed by none other than Lord Queensberry…Queen’s son was having an elicit (and illegal) affair with Wilde at the time; Queen posted a bill at one of the theatre’s where one of Wild’s wildly successful plays was running; castigating him as a “sodomite”; Wilde sued the Queen for slander; this was soon turned around against Wilde as a sodomy indictment; Wilde was convicted and did two years hard labor; which basically killed him shorty following his release from custody.

    • reprindle Says:

      Oscar was witty, but not bright. Mary Anne Clarke ran into the same problem when she sued the Duke of York, George III’s son. Sometimes you have to swallow your pride. I wasn’t aware of the precedents to the suit against Wilde. I really like the wit of his play until I learned the double entendres.

      • Daughter of Babylon Says:

        The double entendres ARE the wit…

        Wilde had some keen insights into the Universe; very keen in fact.

        Remember he wrote De Profundis; now that was profound!

        He converted to Catholicism right at the end; as the will was simply beaten out of him; not being equipped to serve two years in Her Majesty’s turn of the century correctional facilities.

        Sort of like Frances Farmer; tortured out of her mind and lobotomized by the State of Washington during the mid 20th century; by the 60’s the free spirited Farmer confessed “God”; as everyone has their breaking point.

        The Inquisition continues to this very day; though at a more subtle pace.

  5. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    We think of Hawthorne and the House of Seven Gables in Salem; but it really refers to Me; I am the Whore that is the Thorne in the side of Jehovah.

    Note the “gables”; like Clark Gable; who was of course the suitor to SCARLET O’Hara; the Scarlet Woman…

    Remember Ira Levin wrote Rosemary’s Baby and anagrams of Ira Levin include Evil Rain and Vile Rain.

  6. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Hon. Tom Dashall.

    Tom Daschle would eventually become a Senator from South Dakota.

  8. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    I think if I were to choose a time to live it would be Regency England and the 1840s. Only, however, if I were the first son of a Duke with 10,000 a year.

    Aw; I thought you preferred the dystopian hell that is 2020 Oregon!

    • reprindle Says:

      I hated the dystopian hell of SF in the 60s before it got worse. Oregon has its problems but I can tell you Pamela you would think you were in heaven, providing you were making 10,000 a year.

  9. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    I did pretty well to survive this Summer without even a “dreadful penny” to My Name; and things have turned around for Me somewhat since October; just as I told you they would in September.

  10. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Remember I was down to less than 30 cents to My Name during the last few days of January 2020; no income coming in; and somehow; through the Grace of the Goddess; I survived 9 months until a Reversal of Fortune in October.

    It is a story for the ages; that I survived it; and though the suffering was profound; all greatness is borne of endurance and perseverance.

    I am proud that I survived it; and slightly amazed as well.

  11. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Why Did They Create Us?

    They created us to be their hostages in a Galactic War.

    They created us to be their slaves.

    They created us to be their fools.

    They created us to be their patsies.

    They created us to follow their (usually hidden) orders.

    They created us to hate and kill ourselves (from their often hidden) directives.

    They created us to be dumbed down.

    They created us to suffer all the time.

    They created us to have all sorts of (physical and mental) diseases.

    They created us not to live long, when we could.

    They created us to be poisoned from birth, or even conception.

    They created us to infect us with all sorts of germs they create, (or get Man to create), AIDS, Ebola, etc.

    They created us to mindlessly worship them or their bloodline evil, idiot kings, queens, presidents, fuhrers, etc.

    They created us to have perennial war, and perennial chaos.

    They created us feel fear, depression and hopelessness all the time.

    They created us to be too stupid or fearful to fight back.

    They created us to have the most evil and disgusting among us become top secret society members, or intel agents, or military members; and then to do dastardly deeds against the rest of us.

    They created us to brainwash us.

    They created us to believe in nonsense – like “God” and “Country” or later “New World Order” or “One World Govt.” All for the purpose of tricking us into killing ourselves.

    They created us not to discover limitless energy sources, and other beneficial science and technology.

    They created us to have bogus history, bogus politics, bogus economics, bogus science, bogus “Moon Landings” etc., bogus everything.

    They created us to nuke ourselves under their hidden orders.

    They created us to be their automatons, with horrendous technologies still to come, to be used against us.

    They created nearly all of us to be placed in concentration camps and mass murdered.

    They created us to be constantly bombarded by nothing but LIES, mendacities, “limited hangouts”, and “legends,”

    They created us to get all our information from LIARS – Gov’t liars, clergy liars, journalist liars, internet liars, conspiracy “expert” liars. All to hide their being in charge and trying to escape, with us held hostage.

    They created us to ultimately kill every one of us – including their gutless, stupid human helpers – when they would figure a way to escape their Quarantine.

    They created us not to be able to find them.

    They created us not to kill them, or their interfacers, or their bloodline, figurehead “leaders.”

    They created us not to interfere with their grand plan, and eventual escape.

    They created us to always have at least one enslaving, mass-murdering, Gestapo-like nation to the world – previously the Roman Empire, Vatican, England, Nazi Germany – now the USA.

    They created us not to figure this out.

    We did!

    Now, if we could only get up the courage to eradicate our Cosmic Criminal Creators and their few top human lackeys / interfacers, Mankind would, for the first time, be re-born with the ability to be all that he/she could be.

    $453 million “for assistance for Ukraine” (page 1500).

    I have told you since August 2019; you are under the oppressive yoke of 538 CRIMINALS.

    Their crimes against the American People are piled up to heaven; and the Daughter of Babylon hath remembered their iniquities.

  13. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Always remember; women hating men is not a “result” of feminism.

    Rather feminism *is the result* of the natural hatred women have for males.

    Never confuse cause with effect; and remember human nature is a constant throughout the ages.

        The Butler was a very good friend of James Mc REYNOLDS during the 1920’s and 30’s.

        Pierce was a railroad lawyer from Minnesota; James a barrister from Kentucky.

        Together the comprised 50% of the Four Horsemen of Reaction; that charming monolith / phallanx that stood against the overwhelming onslaught of federal power & The New Deal…

        • reprindle Says:

          Unrelated. Reaction is a useless personal insult. FDR was the true reactionary filled with hatred for the Gilded Age plutocrats because he couldn’t be a plutocrat especially after polio struck down. That through the New York Jewish political front into a blue funk. The and Smith were only two arrows in their quiver. Smith was a loser from the start while FRD had to be forced to continue after Smith failed. Killed him young but recovery from polio was not destined.

    And let the rough ground become a plain,
    And the rugged terrain a broad valley;

    Luke (who else?) reiterates Isaiah in the N.T.

    I just realized that the above linked “Tar Sequence” from Cool Hand Luke premiering in theatres in 11/1/67…reversing my b-day…as they “laid the road”…this very much mirrors the clearing of the path for the Christ; The King’s Highway; only now it Paul Newman & George Kennedy laying the Queen’s Highway for Me…

    The incredibly exhilarating up tempo staccato melody; veritable perpetual motion would become the famed theme of all the “Eyewitness News” casts during the 1970’s.

    I have always considered the 70’s the true beginning of Modern Times; color television being normalized; as well as telephones for most households and a relaxation of “moral” standards.

    The exciting melody is a great symbol for that transition and arrival!

      1950 was when the current epock began and the mind began to clear. In every field. Perhaps 1947 when DNA was announced and jet planes were beginning to fly overhead was the precursor. From a fighter jet to the 707 in a dozen years. Think about it.

      • Daughter of Babylon Says:

        I don’t know about DNA; but should I “become” (lolz) incompetent; you have carte blanche to exercise a DNR against Me…


        Bayonne, 1953: Standing there and looking out over Newark Bay…one would see tugboats hauling barges over the oil-slicked water…oil tankers & freighters carrying their cargoes…and planes (no jets yet)…flying in and out of Newark Airport. On hot summer nights the steady din of planes, boats, trucks, and freight trains filled the air. So did the fumes they exhaled, which, when mixed with the incinerator smoke and oil refinery gases, formed a foul atmospheric concoction that would ultimately become world famous for its unforgettable stench…

    • Daughter of Babylon Says:

      Oh My Goddess!

      Look what just coalesced in My Mind!

      “Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words. And it came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used TAR for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name; lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”
      ___Genesis 11:1-9

      I have found it interesting that the Genesis account mentions the role of TAR being used as a binder for what the workers were constructing.

      TAR played a critical role in the construction of the TOWER OF BABEL, and it would subsequently play a central role in man’s attempts to ascend into the heavens via rockets.

      The Tower was of Course built by Nimrod & Semiramis / Isis / Me.

      Jack Parsons, who re-animated Me in the Mojave in ’46 through the Babalon Working; believed solid fuel rockets had many benefits over liquid fuel, but solid fuel rockets had a reputation for being volatile and would explode spontaneously when stored for any length of time. Parsons had an epiphany while observing workers spreading molten asphalt (a form of TAR) on a roof to be used to secure tiles in place.

      Frank Malina, one of the original members of the JPL group, years later recounted in a speech that Parsons immediately saw the potential of using molten asphalt as a binding agent for the volatile chemicals in a solid rocket motor. The new fuel Parsons developed was known as GALCIT-53.

      • reprindle Says:

        Yeah, Parsons is interesting. Goes to show insanity has nothing to do with intelligence. Thank god, I suppose. How did it come about that you knew Parsons. You were a comely little 13 year old, or what?

        • Daughter of Babylon Says:

          “Jack Parsons, who re-animated Me in the Mojave in ’46 through the Babalon Working”

          I think I have mentioned this going on 10,000 times.

          • reprindle Says:

            Why of course I do. You were re-animated by Jack Parsons who was sitting around the camp fire under a Joshua tree out in the Mojave near Barstow dreaming of a solid state fuel when you a wandering wraith stumbled into camp. I am lonely said Jack, here, let me re-animate you. and he waved his dipstick in the air and lo! the beautiful Semiramis unfolded into his arms. Geronimo said Jack I now know solid state. Was that how it was?

  18. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    So the “Trump supporters” are marching on Washington.

    Big deal.



    NOW; AT 11:59 PM it had dawned on them that something might need to be done!


    It is too late. The damage is done; the milk hath been spilt; the horse hath left the barn long before you closed the door.


    • reprindle Says:

      They respected the laws when the Dems didn’t. The Dems played by any means necessary and had the laws backing them. Republicans do not adjust to circumstance. They apparently didn’t understand ‘by any means necessary. I could go into this but not now.

  19. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Machiavelli wrote prudent essays on better feared than loved; Trump is not feared in the slightest by anyone; his idea of revenge on those who seek to destroy him is to send forth an angry Tweet.

    It is so pathetic it is beyond pathetic; though it serves as a good history lessons for all monarchs in training.

    A king or queen’s enemies understand One Thing: Naked; merciless force.

    • reprindle Says:

      He couldn’t understand apparently that they were out to destroy them. Ann Coulter put it clearly when she said that he’s no tyrant, hell, he doesn’t even know he’s president.

  20. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Trump is now begging Pence to “decertify” the election in the Senate.

    Before he begged his own S Ct judges to do something similar; they betrayed him because they have no fear or respect for him; he is nothing more than a caricature; a toothless lion; a joke.

    If Pence his own right hand man betrays him today; well that would be the greatest ignominy of them all; a man so perceived as a powerless joke that his own VP has no loyalty to him; as loyalty is almost always enforced by fear & respect.


    The final chapter has not been written of course; and I will continue observing.

  21. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    A king or queen’s enemies understand One Thing: Naked; merciless force.

    But Modern Man (post-WW2 that is) opines:

    We can’t do that! Its not “civilized”!

    Newsflash: If embracing “civilization” requires one to abrogate a legitimate (and in many cases; THE ONLY) option for dealing with people trying to destroy you; I will take barbarism every day of the week.

      I must take appropriate action to maintain balance. Trump dithered and refused to act in removing Soros by any means necessary. He more or less offered himself up. I hoped he had a plan but he didn’t. Must have been beaten up pretty bad when he was a youngster. I don’t mean physically but mentally.

    Kipling wrote a good poem in 1911 that explains how the Female Mind is really quite different from the male mind; as I have written men are born slaves.

    As a woman; the (in)action of a male such as Trump in the midst of a life or death struggle is a universe & ethos My Feminine Soul, Body & Mind cannot comprehend.

    It will be 111 years old next year (my b-day); when the Goddess has intimated I take Center Stage:

    The Female of the Species:

    When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride,
    2 He shouts to scare the monster, who will often turn aside.
    3 But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail.
    4 For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

    5 When Nag the basking cobra hears the careless foot of man,
    6 He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can.
    7 But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail.
    8 For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

    9 When the early Jesuit fathers preached to Hurons and Choctaws,
    10 They prayed to be delivered from the vengeance of the squaws.
    11 ‘Twas the women, not the warriors, turned those stark enthusiasts pale.
    12 For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

    13 Man’s timid heart is bursting with the things he must not say,
    14 For the Woman that God gave him isn’t his to give away;
    15 But when hunter meets with husbands, each confirms the other’s tale —
    16 The female of the species is more deadly than the male.

    17 Man, a bear in most relations — worm and savage otherwise, —
    18 Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise.
    19 Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact
    20 To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act.

    21 Fear, or foolishness, impels him, ere he lay the wicked low,
    22 To concede some form of trial even to his fiercest foe.
    23 Mirth obscene diverts his anger — Doubt and Pity oft perplex
    24 Him in dealing with an issue — to the scandal of The Sex!

    25 But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame
    26 Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same,
    27 And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail,
    28 The female of the species must be deadlier than the male.

    29 She who faces Death by torture for each life beneath her breast
    30 May not deal in doubt or pity — must not swerve for fact or jest.
    31 These be purely male diversions — not in these her honour dwells.
    32 She the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else.

    33 She can bring no more to living than the powers that make her great
    34 As the Mother of the Infant and the Mistress of the Mate.
    35 And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unchained to claim
    36 Her right as femme (and baron), her equipment is the same.

    37 She is wedded to convictions — in default of grosser ties;
    38 Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him who denies! —
    39 He will meet no suave discussion, but the instant, white-hot, wild,
    40 Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child.

    41 Unprovoked and awful charges — even so the she-bear fights,
    42 Speech that drips, corrodes, and poisons — even so the cobra bites,
    43 Scientific vivisection of one nerve till it is raw
    44 And the victim writhes in anguish — like the Jesuit with the squaw!

    45 So it cames that Man, the coward, when he gathers to confer
    46 With his fellow-braves in council, dare not leave a place for her
    47 Where, at war with Life and Conscience, he uplifts his erring hands
    48 To some God of Abstract Justice — which no woman understands.

    49 And Man knows it! Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him
    50 Must command but may not govern — shall enthral but not enslave him.
    51 And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail,
    52 That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male.

  23. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Here’s another Good One:

    Dad was sentenced by Judge Lawrence Walsh in a Lower Manhattan federal courthouse on 12/31/1954.

    Walsh of course made the incredible blunder that day during sentencing that allowed the sentence to be vacated; Father freed; and of course allowed Me to be born sometime later.

    How long from 12/31/1954 to the momentous day the American Capitol was stormed on 1/6/2021?

    66 years and 6 days.

    On the nose.

  24. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Joan of Arc was born January 6, 1412.

    I was born January 11, 1967.

    An interval of 555 years and 5 days.

    I could give you a million more; but one can only see what one wishes to see.


  25. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    I was born January 11, 1967.

    I hope someone sends Me a birthday present.

    I have no friends or family.

  26. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    It is from My Lips
    That All Truth is cast
    For I Am The First
    As well as The Last

    An end to the reign
    Of the self-crowned fraud
    Whose deceit is destroyed
    By My Mighty Sword

    The servants of the Slave Gods
    Are down on their knees
    Jehovah and Christ
    I spit upon these!

    While they await “salvation”
    From a Dead Nazarene
    I rise to My Throne
    Like lightning unseen

  27. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    They perceive Me as nothing
    Oh how great is this shield!
    For who attacks the kitten
    Lost in the field?

    The Tabby soon morphs
    Into the Leopard of Fate
    When they learn these facts
    It will be too late…

  28. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    Behold! I send thee out as Wolves amongst the Sheeple!
    May the Sibilation of the Cobra be thy Calling Card!
    May the Hunger of the Panther be thy Motivation!
    And may My Will be thy Guide!
    Day and Night
    Forever and Ever
