A pointed lesson …

… The Complaints of the Poor by Robert Southey | Poetry Foundation. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

Robert Southey was born on August 12, 1774. He was England's Poet Laureate from 1830 until 1843. He was Coleridge's brother-in-law. Methinks conditions have improved somewhat since he wrote this poem.
