We feel that poetry is an important adjunct to history. Where people have a tradition of oral history, rhyming, alliteration and song are often used as memory aids as much as creative devices.

This site contains a selection of poetry, both old and new, as well as the lyrics of the songs in the musical The People Must Pay.
