THE LAST MAN: ANTICIPATION OF EVIL TIDINGS, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: I fear there is some maddening secret
Last Line: Telling of murder.
Subject(s): Evil; Murder; Secrets

I FEAR there is some maddening secret
Hid in your words, (and at each turn of thought
Comes up a skull,) like an anatomy
Found in a weedy hole, 'mongst stones and roots
And straggling reptiles, with his tongueless mouth
Telling of murder.
