The Here And The Now: Mob Rule

Robert Wyatt
Language: English



Plans were unveiled,
the press informed,
residents muttered their doubts and fears
at meetings.

A brace of councillors
voiced concern.
Some assent was murmured.

There were Advisors
and Expert Guidance had been sought.

Whom to trust?
Who could know
just what that meant:
Expert?

People are so ungrateful,
it’s quite hard on Chairmen.

Directors of Planning must be given
the right to make Plans.
Just as, say,
the woodworm
must bore.

So too,
Advisors must
Advise.
