On Torture: A Public Singer

Torture will give a dozen pence or more
To keep a drab from bawling at his door.
The public taste is quite a different thing-
Torture is positively paid to sing.

by Hilaire Belloc

Let Crosses....Thanks for sharing!
We believe that it was not the Christ who was put on the cross but God Almighty lifted him up in the sky and soon he will come back to earth.
