By Alexander Clark

A man alone is no man at all,

Neither rich nor poor,

Sad nor sane,

Bounded only

 

By whatever sense his world makes.

A society of one,

Is by definition

An autocracy.

 

Events tell tales,

Interaction accords recordings.

Engagement becomes necessary

If everything isn’t to be made up.

 

Solipsistic self saturation occasionally serves as solace

 

If everything isn’t to be made up,

Engagement becomes necessary.

Interaction accords recording.

Events tell tales.

 

An autocracy,

Is by definition,

A society of one

By whatever sense his world makes

 

Bounded.

Sad or sane,

Rich or poor,

A man alone is no man at all.
