Futility

Futility

It would seem that all hope is lost, yet,
blindly, I continue to search,
the prospect too bleak to face.
Does it make me a fool,
attempting to find
an honest man,
when I know
there are
none?

This nonet is in response to November Yeats Challenge: Day One, from Jane Dougherty (each day a new Yeats quote).  Today’s quote didn’t inspire too much optimism.
