A sordid scene

Sordid Scene

                                                                        Pale

Thro’ the thick vagueness of the vaporous night,

From the dark alley, with a clouded light,

Two rheumy, melancholy lampions flare.

They are the eyes of the Police.

 

Rather harsh?

 

Edward Bulwer Lytton (1831-1891)
