Mrs Jellyby

For your concerns are global
You can’t stop for the mundane;

Your motives pure and noble,
So I know you cannot deign

To fool with the prosaic.
All modernity forbids —

To do a thing archaic
Like take care of your own kids

  1. I just finished reading bleak house so that made this one extra interesting. I love how you boiled it down to the message behind her portrayal. Well done. 😊
