Time to dust off the 'Areopagitica'?

Have we not been sufficiently drenched

in the acid rain that is pseudo-politesse?

Can you not hear the crunching

of eggshells under the soles of our shoes?

Are we no longer entitled to honesty,

and satire, and sharp wits?

 

But be warned: sharp wits demand sharp tongues,

and your obsession with offence stains

the canvas of intellectual largesse.
