A Country of Yes Men

 

A Country of Yes Men

 

 

From those who protest on roads,

In unforgiving winter,

To those who lost jobs, savings

In that whimsical lockdown.

We are expected to be thankful

To have survived so far

We should be obliged,

To have been shielded

When the piles of dead, diseased

Were abandoned to chance

Paeans of praise,

I am expected to sing

Or face the prison

Should I choose to question.

The leader demands

We obey,

Or else.
