020 – A Nightingale Sang in Trafalgar Square

I’ve seen some unexpected sights
But none more odd this year
Than anti-mask protestors shouting
‘Freedom’ with a cheer.

No to masks, vaccines and second wave
Seemingly oblivious at
The contradictions between those three
And how together they might influence that

In the cold light of the day
They may rue that they were there
If they booked their place in The Nightingale
As they sang in Trafalgar Square.
