To secretly agree with the minority
To be a secret minority of one
To openly vote with the minority
To be an open minority of one
To be the minority’s speaker
To defend the minority view
As a solitary speaker
To attack the majority view.
Whine, whinge, cringe and cry
Crawl, stand, march and fly
Out of mud
Standing straight
Reviled by all,
Hailed as great.
Last, first
Early, late
Vertical
