The Borrowed Future Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


To observe the happy ignorance divideA
when blindside vanity takes a rideA
The affordable vision without integrityB
overspread trust in God for certaintyB
Status quo in brisk and suretyB
invested in generations of immortalityB
While in those pleasant ideal we talkC
abusing the resources as we walkC
To gain in every art to be triedA
mistaken foolishness with prideA
Witnessing all scruple cares to proveD
to reward the borrowed loveE
Propitious heaven and absolute adoredF
cooking the golden goose imploredF
The prosperous falling with ardent eyesG
to obtain by all means the needed priceH
Blind power granted with determined affairsI
jumping boats before the falling sharesI
Warnings dispersed on empty airJ
economic footprints without repairJ
The boundless sky in perfect imageK
refined suits handle shifted fault scrimmageL
The comedy as human race presideA
not seeing history as true learning guideA
