A backstreet opticians? I’ve seen odder things in Shoreditch.
It was only when I stopped to read it did I realise the political commentary it was making. And then it was only when I typed the words into Google that I realised it was lyrics from a John Lennon song called ‘Gimme Some Truth‘.
And here’s the song if like me you’ve never heard of it before.
‘I’m sick and tired of reading things,
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth’
