Trades - The Mason

The rough-hewn stone is chisel'd round,
 And firmly fixed on solid ground;
 A hase just fit to place King Lud's son,
 Our George the fourth, or Ex king Hudson:
 Or tawdry house where members play
And fool the nation's cash away,
 Where not a gallery, stair, or room
 Is what it should be - ask Lord Brougham.
 Where, what's within, the outside tells
By sundry lots of caps and bells;
 Where, ere the inside's fit for hearing,
 The outside Nobs will want repairing.
From March's Penny Library 1860
