Halaman 148 - Have made thee last and worst of peopled deserts ; Then in the last gasp of thine agony, Amidst thy many murders, think of mine! Thou den of drunkards with the blood of princes ! " Gehenna of the waters ! thou sea Sodom ! Thus I devote thee to the infernal gods ! Thee and thy serpent seed ! [Here the DOGE turns, and addresses the Executioner.
