“Milton! thou shouldst be living at this hour:
England hath need of thee”, but then again
Any leader, in his prime, would do, strong men
With wisdom, wit and humour could empow’r
Us to act, to fight for justice, they’d not cower
Before these ‘representatives’ who when
Just scratched reveal they represent not ten
In any hundred thousand, yet who tower
And dominate as if they speak for all.
We needs must ‘wipe them out by peaceful means’
With decent revolution which still cleans
As thoroughly as violence, yet restores,
So we regain the courage of the fall
That sent us, willing, out through Eden’s doors.
