Great Tubba Ponders What It Is Like to Have Lived for Many Years in the Same City

He looked at me
with a leery eye,
Great Tubba, he
of the wandering eye.

“What used to be a blank slate
is now covered with scars.

Everything once said freedom to me;
it said, sweetly, the future.
Everything now says fate to me
and reminds me of my war
and my defeat.”
