Question description

To the Mercy Killers

If ever mercy move you murder me,

I pray you, kindly killers, let me live.

Never conspire with death to set me free,

but let me know such life as pain can give.

Even though I be a clot, an aching clench,

a stub, a stump, a butt, a scab, a knob,

a screaming pain, a putrefying stench,

still let me live, so long as life shall throb.

Even though I turn such traitor to myself

as beg to die, do not accomplice me.

Even though I seem not human, a mute shelf

of glucose, bottled blood, machinery

to swell the lung and pump the heart -- even so,

do not put out my life.  Let me still glow.

1-Is the occasion for or the setting of the poem important in understanding its meaning? If so, why?

2- How important is the role of metrics ( sound effects), such as rhyme and rhythm? How do they affect tone and meaning?
