Edwin Arlington Robinson - Two Men

There be two men of all mankind 
That I should like to know about; 
But search and question where I will, 
I cannot ever find them out. 

Melchizedek he praised the Lord, 
And gave some wine to Abraham; 
But who can tell what else he did 
Must be more learned than I am. 

Ucalegon he lost his house 
When Agamemnon came to Troy; 
But who can tell me who he was -- 
I'll pray the gods to give him joy. 

There be two men of all mankind 
That I'm forever thinking on: 
They chase me everywhere I go, -- 
Melchizedek, Ucalegon.

I rather don't know what Edwin Arlington Robinson wanted
to say in the poem but I think the one part with Troy is about the battle fo Troy. I don't know what the poem is about anyway...-.- but I think he /she is speaking abou men! lol

This is my homework for my next Englis lesson! So please write something about the poem please!
thx Jenny
