I Protest

The long arm of the law
just got longer
whatever it takes
to make
the government stronger
please remember
protest is fine
if it’s on your own time
well out of sight IF you don’t mind
and no whispering, or shouting
no sarky pouting
no flouting
of blank sheets of paper
we put the kibosh
on that particular caper
no blocking the thoroughfare
or any damned where
no singing, dancing
unauthorised glancing
padlock chancing
synchronised chanting
or advancing
on the pavement
progress three steps
and you’ll be making a statement
it may be the land of hope and glory mate
but that doesn’t mean you can congregate
