this is lockdown without the stocks
without the locks
no one is throwing rotten eggs at you
so basically?
basically meaningless,

and we've come to expect that
from that lot.

what else could we do?
the loudmouth shouts out,
shoot those who break the curfew
and some would too.

We'll all end up in a psych' ward
and that's a real lockdown
