Now is the winter of Tory discontent
Made glorious summer by this son of Trump;
And all the clouds that lour’d upon Clarrie’s flat
In the deep bosom of John Lewis buried.
Now are his lies upheld as victorious wreaths;
His murderous mistakes as monuments to his rule.
Our stern reprovals are met with merry disregard,
His betrayals are laughed away.
Brexit and the pandemic hath smooth’d his path to power;
And now, instead of blathering on in Parliament
To the disdain of a sneering Opposition,
He capers nimbly before a grateful nation
To the mendacious tunes of Making Britain Great Again.
But he, that is not trained to sportive tricks,
Nor made to court a fickle crowd;
He, that is too much stamp’d by practice of the law,
To offer ‘porkies’ to feed a ravenous mob;
He, that is curtail’d of this fair mendacity,
Cheated of a foul dissembling nature,
Honest, unblemished, sent innocent
Into this seething world, scarce half prepared,
And that so lamely and unfashionable
That Momentum do bark at him when e’re he pass,
Why, he, in this deceitful time of lies,
Hath no delight to pass away the time,
In telling that blue is red or red is blue.
Therefore, is he determined to be a leader;
To take upon himself the burdens of defeat
And thus declare, “Angela, you’re sacked”.

All the best
Is it possible to be subdued by the weight of words ?? Large brains like large computers can just gobble input and methodically process millions of words. But most humans cant. Is there virtue in arguing simply and succinctly ?? “Le mot juste” ??
That is rather unkind to most humans, many of whom abhor cant and enjoy rational discussion.
