He thought – why not just trade it all in 

Nationality, identity, family, society

And like Tom Bayer the financier 

Move to some island that’s not a dependency of a major foreign power

And there settle in

Is true freedom not the death of all dependency? 

Meaning the idea could be nothing more than just a fancy

And humanity inherently has a need for belonging 


in financial markets
is a portent
of pecuniary failure
