This poem depicts so well the desire to do something and the recognition that it is not possible to do much. It is probably not a poem that is posted on the walls of assisted living facilities, but it might be if the director did not understand it.

The recent fashionable interpretations of "Ulysses" I think illustrate Sturgeon's Law, that 90% of everything is crap, but that number has to be higher for articles that appear in The Explicator, a journal with a great title that promises clarification and delivers obfuscation. I don't know if that rag still exists.
