"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time." (T S Eliot)

WORTHLESS STRANGER

Perhaps I'm a stranger,
Lost on this plane,
Foreign,
Never knowing the native way,
Trusting,
Seeking the sun
After the rain,
And thus duped,
A victim of the affray.
I once aspired
To love my work and learn,
Long years spent,
Politic,
An easy tool.
Today I'm valued
At what I can earn,
And so it seems
I am a worthless fool.
