I’ve no taste now to introduce The topic that revolves my mind – Nay, not a topic; there’s no kind Of order governing the loose, The sultry, savage, things I find.

For in my skull there lurks a mist Which cankers every spark of thought, Which knows but miseries forgot, And succours sins I would resist, And cheapens triumphs I have sought.

(Dawe 2017)
