Downing Street – John S. Clarke

A 1922 verse that’s still as true today.
John S. Clarke was a socialist MP, poet, and lion-tamer amongst many other things.

If you’ve searched without success in every pestilent latrine
For a sample of the most revolting filth the eye has ever seen;
If the garbage of the midden and the sewage of the drain
Reward you not, and all your efforts seem in vain,
Let not barren explorations fill your busom with despair,
Just trot around to Downing Street, you’ll sure unearth it there.

John S. Clarke
