Thought of a Briton, After Wordsworth
Two voices are there, one is of the Tweet
That shrills “Put on a mask and stay indoors,
Protect our NHS, stay off the street,
Covidiots, you’ve lost the culture wars.
No one will listen as you speak, and spray
Your poisoned drops of death all over town.
You should be locked up, locked in, locked away
For questioning the wisdom of lockdown.”
The other voice opines “When we approve
Of what the placards say, when they inspire us
With virtue, the police must not remove
Protestors on the pretext of a virus.
Free speech is vital. Everyone is free
To state their views, as long as we agree.”
