Martyr

from T.S. Eliot – The Waste Land on Rap Genius

Meaning

Here is St. Magnus himself, inside of the Church of the same name. Eliot was a rector at this parish for a few years before the crown redistricted churches after the Great Fire (and to provide freedom of religion), so Magnus Martyr became a Catholic parish again.
