Wear a Mask

Wear a Mask

 
Hey, wear a mask: it shows you truly care!
This is the shit Scott Eric Alt is shitting
Nowadays. And in my view it is fitting
That leftist types in need of brain repair
Should find a means to signal virtue there.
By hiding out, by being wimps, by quitting,
By whacking off at home or simply knitting,
They’re heroes saving maidens bright and fair.
Reality says otherwise, however.
Their slack, uncritical obedience
Renders them neither brave nor strong nor clever
In the face of imperious events.
When will they overflow with virtue? Never!
They cannot even claim mere common sense.
