Mary, or, Out of the Slums | 07-Feb-09

Have you seen the streets of London
Heard the crying babies weep
Mothers heedless to their crying
In a drunken sleep

Poem about a young girl from the slums who enters a big church, and the congregation stares at her in disapproval, because of her ragged clothes.

At the end of the poem both the mother and the father are converted to Christianity, and give up drinking.

Our enquirer remembers reciting this at Sunday School.
