Friends and well-wishers urging me to rise and shine
it’s time I should step foreward and show up the world my mettle
and stop behaving the gosling I appear to be .
But I seem to be in a stupor
Stuck in mud and in limbo
not of my making but incapability’s hand in it .
I lack the facilities and material to do it all
poverty dot on me so well .
Fate has it that I will die a pauper and buried in nondescript burial grounds.
