White Collared Austerity

And eyebrows will be raised,
Thick and thin,
Blond and black,
Done or not.
Eyebrows will be raised
At all the rot.

Sadly, only eyebrows will be raised:
But not a fist
from a cuff-linked wrist
Nor a cry
from a collared tie.

Only eyebrows will be raised
with frowning fraught.

As someone, who is sort of challenged when it comes to poem-writing.. total respect :)

Nice idea. And good assessment of British responses. So unlike Indian ones, no? In India there are more fists and cries than issues to react to :)
