I've noticed that many really decent people - sinners all, of course, but basically good people - feel like strangers in society here on earth these days, surrounded by greed and criminality.
I also notice from reading and from experience that this phenomenon has more or less been with us as a human race in animal form for awhile, i.e., for thousands of years. Sometimes it gets worse ("golden calf times"), sometimes better (Jonah's successful preaching, etc.).
Sorry for the mini-rant... This is a good poem - it helped me to think out loud!
