THE LOAFER
By tierton Braley
There's such a lot of things to see
In all the world surrounding me,
So very much that's going on
That I can find to gaze upon,
So many sights to fill my eye
I scarcely feel the days go by.
The man who's digging in the street,
The crowd that moves with hurrying
feet,
The teamster, blacked and full of ire,
The firemen clanging to a fire,
It keeps me busy, goodness knows
To note how life about me goes.
And then, of course, I inust keep
track
Of every daring steeplejack
And watch him as he labors there
So coolly fair, far up in air
It's worth the while to see him climb,
And yet it takes a lot of time.
With all these sights and plenty more
I never find my life a bore";
I keep so busy night and day
In watching others work away
To earn their meed of goodly pelf
I have no time to work myself!
DIARY OF FATHER TIME
The publication of official figures
to prove that London is drinking
more than ever before reminds me of
how careful the authorities in the
past were that London should not
miss its full share of ale. In the 16th
century, if the mayor learned that
any brewer had ceased to, brew, the
city council was empowered to take
over the business as a going concern,
and to see that it was kept going.
And for four centuries thereafter
the cry was for beer. There is on
record a petition of 1673, for in
stance, praying that tea, coffee, and
brandy be banned. The petitioners
reasoned that the laborers needed
"good, strong beer and ale, which re
freshed their bodies and neither did
them harm or hindered their work."
Besides, they argued; it cost little
and was made of home-grown grain".
