Quotable: T.S. Eliot (4)

Continuing from The Cocktail Party ...

All we could do was to give them the chance
And now, when they are stripped naked to their souls
And can choose, whether to put on proper costumes
Or huddle quickly into new disguises,
They have, for the first time, somewhere to start from.
Oh, of course, they might just murder each other!
But I don't think they will do that.  We shall see.
