A satire versified about the general discontent in Britain over the repression of the Six Acts passed in August 1819. Castlereagh became the Marquis of Londonderry in 1821. Among the grievances of the author, the suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus is referenced in the line, "To bite my Lord C---- now our Habeas' suspended."
