Wednesday’s Personal Piece

I wouldn’t be a City Councillor (tho’ I was – believe it or not – once asked) for all the China tea in Salisbury. So full marks to those – whatever their political opinions – who are. I just couldn’t resist this one:-

“Shall Barum always crouch beneath

Some Boroughmonger’s rod?

Or shall we still subservient be

To petty tyrants’ nod?

.

Indignantly forbit it all,

Forbid it, hearts so true,

And shew us, at your country’s call,

What Barumites can do.”

John Lentell of Hunter’s Lodge

February 25th, 1968
