The Chancellor's Resolution, 1689

I'm really glad I will never have Cholera. It's like the worst disease you can get, for sure. I really liked the images in this ballad, but I can't make out the text at all. I imagine that it's standard stuff about the Chancellor coming to terms with his mortality. And I love that image of death...he sort of has an uncomfortable expression on his face (skull?) that spoke to me. It's like he's trying to be positive about the whole business, but he can't quite pull it off.

I hope the Chancellor's resolution was that he finally decided to put his foot down and lose some weight.

Idea: New Hollywood diet fad...the Cholera weight loss system. Starlets can drink contaminated water and ta-da! The dessicated, half-dead body of your dreams!
