ANONYMOUS Royalist anti-Napoleonic satirical poem sung to the tune of Father Barnaba's Crutch. Autograph manuscript S.l.n.d., c.1815. 4 p. in-8 in black ink on laid paper bifeuillet. "It is easy my faith to see the difference to be in the power of a King or of a vile engeance a reign of clemency is better than terror long live the King of France to hell with the emperor perhaps one would have done better using reprisals to pass to the gallows all debt scoundrels but if Louis does not think like the usurper long live the King of France to hell with the emperor On a royal throne Louis sits in family the imperial sceptre was only a crutch fruit of extravagance prophet of the misfortune long live the King Cursed are the rascals a bloody decree voted by assassins made perish our father the sky cries vengeance this crime makes horror Long live the King Reproach less founded On the guilty emperor But, prince of Condé you believe him well capable of it because it is from his power that your misfortune flows Long live the King An extravagant fact of Lélbe is his exit it is the feature of a Brigan a rascal it is to be, in bad luck liar and pest Long live the King When all the potentates that reign on the earth a holy alliance they made of good heart and from the soil of France drove out the thief".
