Apart from an autobiographical element, this poem takes for its theme a commentary on social inequalities and unrest seen in places where the author has worked for many years as a volunteer. The style is based on Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgrimmage. Byron, whose words inspired generations of Europeans to rise up against oppression and injustice.
