Commission Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Go my songs to the lonely and the unsatisfiedA
Go also to the nerve racked go to the enslaved by conventionB
Bear to them my contempt for their oppressorsC
Go as a great wave of cool waterD
Bear my contempt of oppressorsC
Speak against unconscious oppressionB
Speak against the tyranny of the unimaginativeE
Speak against bondsF
Go to the bourgeoise who is dying of her ennuisF
Go to the women in suburbsF
Go to the hideously weddedG
Go to them whose failure is concealedH
Go to the unluckily matedI
Go to the bought wifeJ
Go to the woman entailedK
Go to those who have delicate lustL
Go to those whose delicate desires are thwartedG
Go like a blight upon the dulness of the worldM
Go with your edge against thisF
Strengthen the subtle cordsF
Bring confidence upon the algae and the tentacles of the soulN
Go in a friendly mannerD
Go with an open speechO
Be eager to find new evils and new goodP
Be against all forms of oppressionB
Go to those who are thickened with middle ageQ
To those who have lost their interestL
Go to the adolescent who are smothered in familyR
Oh how hideous it isF
To see three generations of one house gathered togetherD
It is like an old tree with shootsF
And with some branches rotted and fallingS
Go out and defy opinionB
Go against this vegetable bondage of the bloodG
Be against all sorts of mortmainB
