Chairman Rhymes. No. 305
This is an advertising poem for Chairman cigarettes, which featured frequently in issues of the Evening Times in 1918. The poem opens with the question 'When Woman sits in Parliament / What ought to be her pay?' The poem then considers whether female parliamentarians should get the same pay as men. The poem is fairly ambiguous on this question but finishes with the lines: 'Just as a Chairman cigarette / Is bought for what is in it'.
