MCMV
The title is 1905 in Roman numerals. 1905 is the year that Great Britain saw official recognition of the office of the Prime Minister. This poem is a reflection on the politics of the age, but it is also more generally a digression on life.

The Offense of Godot, or the Common Tragedy
This isn't very General, as the genre listing might suggest, but it doesn't fit into any of the other genres. The title is a good enough summary, but also an inadequate onethis poem allows for a lot of interpretation, as has been usual with me lately.
