It’s proving popular with lots of banned Twitter folk. I like it.

That poem was truly world class, thankyou so much Ian for recommending it and thanks Abi for reading it out so eloquently.

For me at a glance, it is signifying secrets, ones that they feel they should share, but too afraid to do so for whatever reasons.

It appears to have the ,”I’ll just keep quiet and get on with it” ideology.

I may be completely wrong 🤷‍♀️

I am going to read it again, this is the kind of thing I love, to read a poem, analyse and write essays on.

I miss my English Lessons.

I’d be disgruntled too Abi if I saw toddlers wearing masks, utter Chiid abuse and I don’t care what anyone says😡

I’m glad it’s cooled down a bit, my new freezer arrived and I’ve just hand washed my new bra🤣🤣 I seriously need to get a life🤷‍♀️🤣

Thanks again for this poem Ian, you’ve made my day👏👏👏

Have a great evening everyone 💗

Abi, thank you gor reading the poem, it really hit a nerve. We met at the last March in July (Ellys friend).

I have a substack and I am writing for The White Rose from time to time, how will I send you a poem to read out that might help others who gave lost friends and family to this bloody madness, because of the aim to drive people apart and who may feel alone?

Best, Cherry

Ps you are lucky you are in your pants, just moved and can’t find what I’ve done with mine! Put them in a sack to avoid embarrassment from the removers and they’ve gone missing 😂🤣🤣. I’m down to 5 pairs. May have to turn them inside out 😂😂

I still see a few people wearing masks when I'm in the supermarket and I just shake my head. As Trudi says it is child abuse. It's putting adults fears on to their children. I believe these people aren't going to make it in the new world that's upon us and i expect they're jabbed to the eyeballs just like our lovely friend of Cathy's, Carole Malone 😉.

I liked the poem. I've had to listen to it again. The old brain cells don't work too well 😁. When it says 'we nod and smile for the social '. That made me think about when you meet others and we all say how are you? I will always say I'm fine when a lot of the time I'm not. I don't want to be miserable so I keep it light hearted. We all have worries and concerns that come and go , but being British is about having a stiff upper lip and getting on, not burdening others with your worries. So a lot of the time I think we carry things with us. Maybe to do with protecting those we love?...Also the last verse has just made me think of soldiers who returned from both world wars who never spoke of what they saw.

'But the best men die of a broken heart for the things they cannot tell'. Could be about the horrors of war and friends lost. Anyway interesting stuff. Thanks Abi xx

I resonate with your thoughts on the lovely poem Louise. Hate to mention folks but I went to Sainsbury's earlier and I saw more wretched masks. Mainly elderly but for goodness sake in the warm weather too. Frankly whatever they throw at us in the Autumn just ignore the whole fraudulent lot. What has occurred to me is that they will start up on those texts again to come for the jab- inclu those not vaccinated. I reckon as soon as they start on the dose 4 for the 50+. My finger is already on the delete button. I think the focus will be CBDC if Sunak get's in (which imo is the ultimate aim anyway- that and getting rid of a fair few of us), Truss will carry on warmongering to plunge us into poverty or kill us all off. Believe it or not despite saying this I actually feel more positive about the future and think they will not succeed.

I so agree, the horrors the men who were sent to war had to endure are something we will never know - how can we. We were not there. They did not know what they were going into and were made to feel as if they had no choice, as if it was cowardly to refuse. They did it, they sacrificed, they proved their mettle. God be with each of their brave souls. 🙏

Toddlers in masks 😡🤬😡 can’t even put into words my feelings on that.

Love love love the poem.....it resonates,thank you Iain. I am going to listen to it again and probs again. If I didn’t know he was an older poet I’d have said it was written over the last 2 years.....(I know the ‘masks’ he speaks of are probs metaphorical) but it’s certainly got a feel of what we are going through,especially the battle at times to bite your tongue/keep things in coz the sleepers don’t wanna hear it. Would be good to hear Iain’s take. I fucking love these daily chats Abi,thank you 😍

It certainly does have a feel for today’s times.

Excellent choice of poem👍💗

Duly posted 🙂 and love the chats too 😍, essential night time listening for me 🌛

Brilliant Abi and Ian, thank you . Not heard of the Poet before but he clearly suffered during his life and would have been just as relevant to our times before the Plandemic let alone now.

Silence harms from the inside out.

I’m still seeing drivers out on their own complete with the whole masked man charade. In the words of the great Tracy Chapman “if not now, then when?”..

Love to all ❤️

I feel that poem is going to strike a chord with many people for a variety of reasons. It touched my heart.

Ooh I will so look forward to Cathy. Tmoz.

It’s so funny imagining you going round buying all these various colour wigs🤗😂😂😂

Keep us laughing xx

Great poem and thought provoking, will look him up. Introduced Cathy to someone today, he responded by saying, the time is half past mass psychosis! Think he was impressed 🤣

The Things We Dare Not Tell, loved reading the comments about how others have enjoyed and construed it 🙂.

Agreed Karen 'I feel that poem is going to strike a chord with many people for a variety of reasons', Trudi 'signifying secrets, ones that they feel they should share, but too afraid to do so for whatever reasons', Heather 'Silence harms from the inside out', Jules metaphorical masks, yes.

A beautiful reading of that well, yes, challenging poem 😁. So much I feel we must not tell these days is how it jumped out at me, muzzled by masks of deceit in a world gone mad. And at a personal level with four grown up children, one on my wavelength (thank goodness!), one pink pilled (can get through but only only in slow motion and only so far), one temperamental woke madam and one complete woke loon (been at Uni way too long).

So to maintain the peace it's all about knowing what we dare not say. We can nod and smile the social while, things we must not tell. The world would be such a kindly world if all men's hearts lay bare. Not around here it wouldn't, the nukes come out!

Such is life. You do the best you can and stand by your principles. We live and share the living lies.

Perfectly put Ian. My daughter stormed out of the room the other day after I felt compelled to point out that two recent high profile baby tragedies - for ‘unexplained reasons’- were most likely due to the jabs . So so difficult.

Expand full comment

Yep, you soon get to know the trigger points, basically pretty much anything that challenges the current narrative. Mention one of those triggers and prepare for the backlash! Jab (gotta say Vax!), jab (oops, did it again) injuries, economic migrants as opposed to asylum seekers, what about modern day slavery and people trafficking, rainbow people 🙄, green crap, to name but a few, triggers abound.

Then when you do mind your own business your favourite song gets interrupted in the car by ‘news’ that the latest WEF robot heading the ‘Covid Inquiry’ here says ‘lessons need to be learned’…

Okay, yes… ‘before the next pandemic’… Lordy Lord

Expand full comment

It is so difficult, I agree. Its very hard to accept what's been inflicted on us all. My son just clams up if I mention anything remotely relating to jabs, covid and WEF stuff. He thinks me and his dad are nuttier than a fruit cake 🤣. Sad, but true. It's not good, but it's where we are x

Expand full comment

I agree Ian. We can only do our best. My eldest is pretty woke too I'm afraid. He's been at uni for three years and starting his fourth in September (if his resits go ok🤞). Education in this country needs a damn good shake up. It's the young folk that should be the rebels, not old gits like me lol😁.

Anyway it was a great idea to send Abi the poem and has been interesting reading everyone's interpretation. Thanks Ian. I love the dog in your profile picture. Looks very sweet x

Thanks Louise, nice to hear from a fellow woke sufferer! Well it's my son who's the unwoke one, varying degrees of woke daughters I'm afraid 😒.

Where have all the young rebels gone? Off scrapping in the Culture Wars 🙄. Historic injustices, critical race tripe, white privilege & supremacy, open borders, trans rights, climate change, sorry I need a lie down 🥴.

What about medical tyranny and global fascism? Big business together with big government controlling and tracking your every thought and move? Nah, as long as we can go on holiday or out on the town all's good.

Old gits like us despair 😩

Bella 🐶, yes, my wonderful little anti-woke pooch, helps keep me calm in these torrid times 🥰

I couldn't agree more. I don't expect my sons to have the exact same views and opinions as that would be weird, but they are totally brainwashed I feel and I share your despair. We've had a few heated discussions about trans people and removing statues of historical figures. They've obviously been fed all this at school and if I'd had any idea, I think I would have home schooled. I'm afraid I only woke up to the real world once the pandemic started and would do things very differently if I had my time again.

Bella looks beautiful. I lost both my dogs in March this year, ten days apart. I really miss them being around. My husband is not keen on getting another dog because of the world we now live in and because of what's coming. Dogs bring so much joy and I hope one day to have another loving companion. You cant beat owning a dog x

Same time of awakening 😉 and I of course agree with what you say about the joy of dogs. Very sorry to hear about yours 😥

Toddlers in masks is child abuse. It breaks my heart to think of the damage that is being done to our children in the name of covid. Then when they are old enough to go to school they are hit with the trans and gender shit show. I fear for their future.
