Poetical Economics

Pocock, Thomas Love. 1825. "Pan in Town." In The works of Thomas Love Peacock: including his novels, poems (London: R. Bentley and Son, 1875): pp. 222-27, p. 222.

"The country Banks are breaking:
The London banks are shaking:
E'en quakers now are quaking:
Experience seems to settle,
That paper is not metal,
And promises of payment
Are neither food nor raiment."
