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.
