Ode to Sir Joseph Bazalgette (Some Notes for the Work In Progress)

JosephBazalgettePortrait Moses and Aaron (Numbers 20:11) “And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.”

Alexander Hamilton by Daniel Webster “He smote the rock of the national resources and abundant streams of revenue gushed forth. He touched the dead corpse of the public credit and it sprung upon its feet.”

Sir Joseph Bazalgette “He dug the sewers across London and abundant excrement gushed forth.  He built the pump to release the sludge into the estuary and Londoners flushed their toilets with glee.”
