I believe Walt Whitman is talking about the 'substance' of (all) things,
the basic element or that from which all is made.

So...The Human race is like germs? Pesky little creautes that cause more
harm than good? Wow, nice to see someone who thinks the same, even if he is
kind of dead and rotting.

I believe he was speaking of the years ahead after he is gone, and the
human race.

I have no idea what walt whitman was thinking when he wrote this poem, but
it all flows together and has a certain rythym to it. I like the way he
describes all of the events in the poem, but I still have no idea what he
is talking about!!!!!!!!!
