"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."

The author of that quote may be raised to the altar — Possible sainthood cause for Chesterton.

He also wrote this. Brilliant stuff:

Elegy in a Country Churchyard

The men that worked for England
They have their graves at home:
And bees and birds of England
About the cross can roam.

But they that fought for England,
Following a falling star,
Alas, alas for England
They have their graves afar.

And they that rule in England,
In stately conclave met,
Alas, alas for England,
They have no graves as yet.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton
