The English

Many of the English,
The intelligent English,
Of the Arts, the Professions
      and the Upper Middle Classes,
Are under-cover men,
But what is under the cover
(That was original)
Died; now they are corpse-carriers.
It is not noticeable, but be careful,
They are infective.

— Stevie Smith
