Confused About the Farm Bill? Let’s Clarify

Poem for May Day - James Connolly 1907
Some, faint-hearted, ever seek
Our programme to retouch,
And will insist, whene’er they speak
That we demand too much.
’Tis passing strange, yet I declare
Such statements give me mirth,
For our demands most moderate are:
We only want the earth.
