Bonaparte's Coronation:
An Infernal Ode

”Rhadamanthus"
The Star (December 14, 1804)

Furies! shake the scorpion lash;
    Imps! the song of joy begin;
Till the roof of Hell shall clash,
    Smitten with the gladsome din!
        Fiends and Imps, and Daemons dance,
        Bonaparte is Lord of France!
