Standing under the fobbed

Impendent belly of Time

Tell me the truth, I said,

Teach me the way things go.

All the other lads there

Were itching to have a bash,

But I thought wanting unfair:

It and finding out clash.



So he patted my head, booming Boy,

There's no green in your eye:

Sit here and watch the hail

Of occurence clobber life out

To a shape no one sees -

Dare you look at that straight?

Oh thank you
, I said, Oh yes please,

And sat down to wait.



Half life is over now,

And I meet full face on dark mornings

The bestial visor, bent in

By the blows of what happened to happen.

What does it prove? Sod all.

In this way I spent youth,

Tracing the trite untransferable

Truss-advertisement, truth.

.: :.

the word \'under\' in the first line emphasises the vastness of time. In italics in the first stanza, is the young version of Larkin speaking to the persona of time and asking what the meaning of time is.
When time replies in the second stanza, it says \'sit here\'. It does not tell Larkin to make the most of time, which shows that it is your decision whether to waste time or make the most of it, no one can teach you what is right.
When Larkin replies he says \'oh thank you\', this is a child like reply to emhasise the innocence and naiveity of people against time.
A \'bestil visor\' is an inhumane beast like character.
Larkin says \'sod all\' to show that how he expected time to be was not like the reality.

\'It and finding out clash\' - being told about the way of life in order to experience without needing to find out for oneself as opposed to finding out by foregoing experience. However, what does it matter, this search for the \'truss-advertisement\'? Maybe one\'s mind should be illuminated and content in a supposed enlightenement, yet the last lines tell us that this is not the case. It means \'sod all\' when experience of youth is bargained for an apparently enlightened older self that means regrettably little in comparison - Samina (UK)
