A Letter to the Editor

A Letter to the Editor

Who harnessed all this mud and mire,
flounder, stumble, wary, rattle,
all this brute and unclear history,

whip and reins, and argued reason.
“No-Page 3” and “Je suis Charlie”.
We hold to hardihood, en garde,

but the world’s to pieces. Walking
inked and drawn on humour’s oath.
We, passengers on articles of war.






Inspired by Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
Note: As for today the Sun Newspaper stopped
publishing its page 3 bare-breasted girl photo.
Je suis Charles needs no explanation.
