from ‘The Time Machine’ – H. G. Wells

Bubble

The Time Traveller
was animated

eyes burned brightly,
incandescent lights
in the lilies of
his face,

and was expounding
in his earnestness:

a recondite matter to us
in this after-dinner
atmosphere,
a paradox to our
lazily luxurious bubble
of free glasses.

 

Haves and Have-nots

Workers

the Have-nots

continually adapted
to the conditions
constituted as
to be miserable

and Labour there
getting ventilation to the
Haves

not suffocated

not rebellious
