A Personal Response to Shelley
(England’s Anarchist Poet) 🤒
No, Percy, we cannot do without the State.
But the Fate of the State is always up for debate.
Keep our choppy boat afloat,
The State is good to keep us in line,
To direct the Barque of a Wayward Mankind,
For not everyone is fine.
WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE STATE,
To always lead the criminal Mind.
