    London led by a Child
     
    A great Blake resource from The Tate led me to this picture today, London led by a Child:
      I see London, blind & age-bent begging through the streets
      Of Babylon, led by a child, his tears run down his beard.
    After Bragg on Monday I'm still into Blake as prophet. After last night's blackout Blake's grim vision of a failing capital city seems oddly appropriate. Question: who is that little child? Or what does that little child represent?
