1. Perhaps that the voices for social justice have a long history?

It's something Bob Dylan would have written, had he been around in 1808, when the only public assistance available was workhouses and debtor's prisons, the workday in those "dark Satanic Mills" was a full twelve hours, and children toiled in the pits at collieries and were treated worse than draft animals.

Parry's setting of it does it musical justice.

But that's just my opinion.

What do you make of it?

curiously,
Bright
