Written in two parts. The first part is a "quote" of a poem supposedly written by 'P.J.B., Pinchgut Gully' and published in a 'recent number DOWN AND GUMTREE JOURNAL'. The second part of the verse, with the first line Poor P.J.B! Thou too, in quest of riches, is a reply to the first part and includes two "censored" stanzas and a line and a quarter "censored" from the last stanza. The verse ends with a note signed 'ED.BULLETIN' commenting on the "censorship".
