Tom Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 1

Sponsored Links

That Tom was poor was sure a pity,

      Such guts for learning had the lad;

He took to Greek like babe to titty,

      And he was mathematic mad.

I loved to prime him up with knowledge,

      A brighter lad I never knew;

I dreamed that he would go to college

      And there be honoured too.


But no! His Dad said, "Son, I need you

      To keep the kettle on the boil;

No longer can I clothe and feed you,

      Buy study books and midnight oil.

I carry on as best I'm able,

      A humble tailor, as you know;

And you must squat cross-legged a table

      And learn to snip and sew."

And that is what poor Tom is doing.

      He bravely makes the best of it;

But as he "fits" you he is knowing

      That he himself is a misfit;

And thinks as he fulfils his calling,

      With patient heart yet deep distaste,

Like clippings from his shears down-falling,

                 --He, too, is Waste.
