From the poem Contacts With Trotskyites by Kathy Shaidle:

wearing those infernal lefty lennon spectacles and we
were all laughing about this and I was pondering the
possible ironic connection between poor eyesight and
social awareness
when a spotty, plaid-shirted pamphleteer leapt in front of us
and yelled:

Bishop Tutu is a fool
Sanctions are useless
Passive resistance is counter-productive
Violence is the only alternative

Having recited his lines to perfection, he smiled and his
dared us to respond with equal eloquence

through glasses just like ours.
