Seeking anonymity

For all those hapless beings

Who refuse to use their names,

When complaining of the service

In a market few will name;

I must confess I’m like the rest,

When trying to speak out —

About the politicians

And their seeming, reasoning, clout.

The changes they have planned for us,

In this City by the sea,

Makes me doubt in fearful wonder

What is planned for you and me.

Perhaps I too had better seek

For a hidden name and plan,

Something like a “witness type” —

Protection anagram.
