What was it like for poor
To know that his family was ashamed of him.
That they secretly, and most maliciously, sent him away in the night
To work amongst a farm of invalids in an alien place
Where it was impossible for him to marry and be loved
Just as it was impossible for him to become a priest like he'd always wanted,
All because of that terrible defect that poor
could in no way control.
I hope His ascendance to the top of the silo was brief.
I hope that the view was spectacular, and
Appeared to be as small as they really are from any distance.
Was a long one.
Perhaps He enjoyed it.
