Walking in the Pinter Hinterland

(i.m. Harold Pinter, 1930-2008)

You gave our times a new expression,

challenged what you KNEW was wrong

and had the courage for compression,

longueurs, swear-words; staged a strong

rear-guard to cancer. Screw concession!

[...Pinter-patent pause...] So long.

Note: it is with deep regret that the Recusant notes the passing of Harold Pinter, iconic playwright, poet and political spokesman against all forms of global corruption and

moral hypocrisy.
