Armchair activist

Musique practice: thence to the Trinity House to conclude upon our report of Sir N. Crisp’s project, who came to us to answer objections, but we did give him no ear, but are resolved to stand to our report; though I could wish we had shewn him more justice and had heard him.
Thence to the Wardrobe and dined with my Lady, and talked after dinner as I used to do, and so home and up to my chamber to put things in order to my good content, and so to musique practice.

I practice objection,
give ear
to an ear
to the war—
a din after dinner.
I put things in order,
to practice.

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Wednesday 19 February 1661/62.
