To Mask Or Not to Mask

The question that tries men’s souls.

To mask or not to mask, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous bullying,
And not take aim against seething bullies,
Without opposing, let them do themselves in;
And by their anti-masking, might they end
Their life-ache, and the thousand blue affronts
Their red flesh is heir to? ’Tis a consummation
