‘Twill not be seen in him there.

Context really is everything. The place I went to college was full of individualists, non-conformists and freaks. The out of the ordinary was the norm. It wasn’t the goths all in black that stood out. No. Where I went to college, there was a guy who wore a jacket and tie fairly regularly. If you were trying to tell someone else about him, you’d say, “You know, the Republican” and they’d nod and say, “Oh yeah. That guy.”
Turns out he wasn’t even a Republican, he just looked like one on our campus of freaks. If he’d gone to another school, he’d have fit right in, never made a wave, but at ours, absolutely everyone knew who he was.
