021 – Socialist Irker

monochrome photo of resist signage

You’re quite the little warrior
You’ll hunt through ancient tweets
To find a hint of anything
To throw at Corbyn’s feet

And yet you’re somehow muted
No need felt to chastise
When thugs unfurl a fascist flag
Right before your eyes

Your silence echoes loudly 
And a nagging doubt persists 
It’s not fascists that irk you 
Sounds more like socialists.
