The people of the country welcome the Patriot, initially, with great pomp and show, by decorating the town and cheering so loudly that the “air broke into a mist with bells.” However, these people also ostracized him and encouraged in his execution after the Patriot committed one misdeed. They are so fickle minded that they immediately labeled him as a traitor forgetting all the good deeds that he had done for them and how they used to praise him for his valor and honesty. The poet has criticized the fickle mindedness of the people.
