Lord Jim: One of Us

Jim is ‘one of us’, says Marlow,

About the man who is exceptional so,

The very phrase is alive with myriad meanings,

That Marlow’s judicious heart ecstatically sings.


Jim is ‘one of us’ regardless of race or religion,

He is ‘universal’ like the ray of the dawn,

An emblem of conscience,

An emblem of goodness in every sense.


Until death, Jim stands for honour,

A hero who compared to death seems stronger.
