A sign like this is for me like red rag to a bull. Here I am asserting that Cityrail and its contractors can't tell me what to do. I am waiting, in deliberate contradiction of their order. How's that for an act of subversion! :-)
So this is what old age does to the 1960s anti-vietnam-war protester. Well, I didn't even do that properly. I was involved in some preparatory work for a Moratorium march, but then didn't go the the march.
I went to the start of an all-night vigil against apartheid, but couldn't contact my parents to say that I was going to stay the whole night, so I didn't.
I had a peace emblem thing, but wore it inside my shirt to avoid recriminations from the school principal.
Does the word "pissweak" come to mind?
