Unhappy BOSTON! see thy Sons deplore, Thy hallowe'd Walks
besmear'd with guiltless Gore: While faithless --- and
his savage Bands, With murd'rous Rancour stretch their
bloody Hands; Like fierce Barbarians grinning o'er their
Prey, Approve the Carnage, and enjoy the Day.
If scalding drops from Rage from Anguish Wrung If speechless
Sorrows lab' ring for a Tongue, Or if a weeping World can
ought appease The plaintive Ghosts of Victims such as these;
The Patriot's copious Tears for each are shed, A glorious
Tribute which embalms the Dead.
But know, FATE summons to that awful Goal, Where JUSTICE
strips the Murd'rer of his Soul: Should venal C-ts the
scandal of the Land, Snatch the relentless Villain from
her Hand, Keen Execrations on this Plate inscrib'd, Shall
reach a JUDGE who never can be brib'd.
