The Borough is one of the two works for which George Crabbe became best known. It is a lengthy poem dealing with the way of life he had grown up with.
See! round the room, on every beam and balk, Are mingled scrolls of hieroglyphic chalk; Yet nothing heeded-- would one stroke suffice To blot out all, here honour is too nice,-- "Let knavish landsmen think such dirty things, We're British tars, and British tars are kings."
