ON THE ABOLITION OF THE SLAVE TRADE,
METHINKS, I see grim Slavery's gorgon form,
Like one condemn'd for blackest crimes, aghast,
To hear her sentence by stern Justice pass'd!
Wiping the tear from Misery's scalded cheek;
That fell Oppression's shackles soon shall break!
To Heaven the prayer of Piety ascends ;
While the poor Negroes' persecution ends!
Forbidden to pursue the barbarous trade; ~-
When in thy balance of injustice weigh’d!
No longer may’st thou torture, maim, or kill;
Torn from his native land, thy fields to till!
From Niger's fount to Nile's sea-mingling food,
Bath'd in such torrents of thy tears and blood !
Time shall engrave your honours on his urn!
