This poem is terrible. The shear amount of suck in this poem is comprable
to the pain felt by the jews during the holocaust. I wish someone would
destroy it from all public records.

The poem emphasized certain things that happened in his life. Like the 40
acres. The 40 acres is the farm he lived on at his grandparents estate. The
other things he talks about in the poem are things he used to do on the
farm. He used to be the fiddler on the farm because he didn't want to farm.
Towards the end of the piece he loses something, he loses something that he
doesn't regret losing.
