Whose influence, like the wreath of radiant fire,
On flickering Phœbus’ front. William Shakespeare, King Lear.
’Twas ebbing darkness, past the mid’ of night,
And Phospher, on the confines of the light,
Promis’d the sun, ere day began to spring;
The tuneful lark already stretch’d her wing,
And flick’ring on her nest, made short essays to sing. Dry.
At all her stretch her little wings she spread,
And with her feather’d arms embrac’d the dead;
Then flickering to his pallid lips, she strove
To print a kiss, the last essay of love. Dryden.

If you have any flicker of independent thought, if you have any desire to use your faculties to live in a way that is right for you and not to be under complete draconian, authoritarian rule by this administration and the Democrats, who are coming for every single one of our freedoms, they want you to wear masks forever, they want to be locked down forever, they want to control what you say and where you say it and who you say it to -- well, you're running out of time.
