Out of the closet not,

He gave it special thought…

Wanted to join,

Hadn’t the coin

Someone gave him the shot!

Wasn’t used to being in crowds,

This one particularly loud…!

Laughter and joking

While he sat hoping

Somebody would soften the sound.

He hung in till the end,

Jealous of those with more friends…

But the Hermit’s unique–

He’ll rarely speak,

But whether he does—it depends.

–Jonathan Caswell
