They told to Marie Antoinette:

      "The beggers at your gate

Have eyes too sad for tears to wet,

      And for your pity wait."

But Marie only laughed and said:

      "My heart they will not ache:

If people starve for want of bread

                  Let them eat cake."

                  

The Court re-echoed her bon mot;

      It rang around the land,

Till masses wakened from their woe

      With scyth and pick in hand.

It took a careless, callous phrase

      To rouse the folk forlorn:

A million roared the Marseillaise:

                  Freedom was born.



And so to Marie Antoinette

      Let's pay a tribute due;

Humanity owes her a debt,

      (Ironical, it's true).

She sparked world revolution red,

      And as with glee they bore

Upon a pike her lovely head

                  --Her curls dripped gore.
