I am today's protester

Complying with the latest plan;

I use a spray to make my day

Spreading graffiti with aerosol can

And when I can't do it in their halls

I console myself with stuff on walls.


I block the free passage of the road

So workers can't get by

And push the police to "overload"

So that they barely try

To enforce the laws that have been made

To keep the world engaged in trade.


Perhaps I should write to my MP

Who was elected as my voice

Intelligent letters in quantity

Might be a wiser choice.

But it's fun to be a pain in the bum

While making sure I say "sorry chum".


What's the next reason to protest?

Be sure to let me know

So I can be amenable to arrest

And put on a real "London show"!

I need to feel my life's worthwhile -

What better than a style.

I think I was persuaded to write this by the conceit on display. Anyone would think the rest of us lived in a vacuum. There is also
the readiness to "believe" in what is insisted on as the cause(s)
of what is now described as "global warming/climate change".
Humanity has a record down the centuries of meeting danger with awareness- something no other living creature possesses.
Let's keep that awareness and do all we can to counter malign
man-made effects on the world and use rational hysteria-free mindsets to enable our responses. Let us ALSO respect the
massive rarely addressed influence of sun storms/spots/flares on
the climate. In January 1661, in a world free from industrial/toxic
effluent, the diarist Samuel Pepys wrote of the weather in the
winter of 1660/1661. I quote verbatim for its relevance:
"It is strange what weather we have had all this winter; no cold
at all; but the ways are dusty, and the flyes(sic) fly up and down,
and the rose-bushes are full of leaves, such a time of the year as
was never known in this world here," Living requires a rational perspective, free from fear and hyperbole. Let us act accordingly.

MC You forgot to mention all the bright young things who have a right to ' go travelling' all around the world, and not by bicycle or skateboard by the way.

Bring back Boris' water cannon I say!
