This is a commercial publicity poem that focuses on the issue of reform. The poem promotes Tabernacle, a furniture store based at 19 Greenside Place, Edinburgh. The poem heralds the importance of reform, but not just parliamentary - The Tabernacle positions itself as backing the 'popular wants' in terms of furniture. That said, The Tabernacle does not position itself as opposed to anti-Reformers; the poem states that the Tabernacle will supply all, from peasant to peer.
