An incredibly enthusiastic poem, which overstates the gains of the Reform Bill. The speaker writes that freedom has now been 'given alike to every man' and that 'corruption, brib'ry, vice' have been destroyed by the 'flood of light burst in upon our land'. The poem is written in iambic pentatmeter, with an ABAB rhyming scheme.
