By autumn 1815 and as the bailiff beckoned along with the sale of his precious library and several threatened executions - Byron in his worry and torment behaved as many have done before…
Yes, he got drunk AND frequently!
One of my favourite songs is by the Arctic Monkeys called 'Black Treacle'...
'Now it's getting dark and the sky looks sticky
More like black treacle than tar
Ah, ah! I know what you are thinking! Black treacle and Lord Byron?
