A Jury of Somebody’s Peers

 

.
Citizenship is not an unmixed blessing.
I do my civic duty with a groan.
A citizen is in these lines confessing
Citizenship is not an unmixed blessing.
At all the downsides I am merely guessing,
But one of them at last is clearly known.
Citizenship is not an unmixed blessing.
I do my civic duty with a groan.

 
–Tom Riley
