The Election...

[Workhouse photo, late 19th century]

"This class complain of poverty but show no appearance of it while the other is so destitute that one wonders they should have been silent so long"

Tibbles "The Prose of John Clare" page 226

  1. Reformers of old England support a kingdoms claim
    Nor leagued with cunning knavery grow infamous in fame
    Dishonour not the land where proud freedoms rights was born
    Nor let your boast of knowledge now be lost in utter scorn
    (Clare 1822)
