Poem Sad I Ams
The persona in the poem conveys his feeling of sadness and of being neglected. To express these feelings, he compares himself with several things found in the home. Some of the things are a metal ring from a drink can and food scrapings from an unwashed porridge pan which are usually discarded. Broken parts of discarded last year’s Action Man are usually thrown out too. Only envelopes with gums are useful. Sticky tapes, a stapleless stapler, a broken bulldog clip, and liquid paper are popular items in our stationery aids. However, they are only useful if they are serviceable. The same goes with parts of a car. The battery must be well-charged and the starter motor workable for the car to work well. A lifeless spark plug , a chocked carburetor and a dull chromium trim all add up to an unattractive car. The persona feels like an unkempt garden, an untouched library book, and an unfed stray on the street or an unneeded piece of good advice.
