Money and Liquidity in Stroud and Slad, 1825

She, a cord wainer from Slad,
He, a loom weaver from Stroud,
Their master clothier employers,
From Slad and from Stroud,
Men, upright, Christian and proud
Of their Master Clothiers' Association,
Against any weavers' combination,
Ordered angry weavers to Hell,
So they were dipped in the Stroudwater Canal, 

A succinct explanation
By the weavers' combination
Of the liquid nature of capital.
