This poem appears in The Carsonian, the organ of the Aberdeen University Unionist Association. This issue was published when Carson was contending the Aberdeen rectorship position, against Prime Minister Asquith. The poem claims that Carson will be the best candidate and it attacks 'no good' Asquith. In the second stanza of the poem, the speaker relishes the fact that the suffragettes will make Asquith's life misery: by 1908, the suffragettes attacked Asquith for supposed betrayal.
