A fragment on special pleading

Excited at this new archival discovery of doggerel (In the archive of my head, that is …). And if Bracton can include little stories about jesters and the like, and YBs and Plea Rolls can include pictures and little rhymes, I don’t see why not …


There are several Is in ‘Appallingly Bad and Selfish Instincts When Pinged to Self Isolate’


This feckless and reckless pretender,

an odious snake oil vendor

who’s certain that rules,

are for gullible fools

sells as ‘freedom’  his sordid surrender.


(Sometimes only a limerick will do … I know, it’s not exactly Extinction Rebellion …)
