The message Thanhha Lai is trying to convey in the poem “Saigon is gone” is that the event was chaotic causing the people to fearful and distressed. For example, when Ha and her family are on the ship taking them to America a helicopter flies above. Ha describes, “People run and scream, communists!” (68) The author used specific actions to infer the people were scrambling in distress, because they’re fearful their lives will soon end.

In Housman’s poem “To An Athlete Dying Young” the theme of the poem is victory, and glory as author begins the poem on a cheerful tone, and continuously leads back to glory, despite the young boy’s death. The speaker remembers when the athlete had won a big race, and the townspeople carried the athlete through the marketplace in celebration, bringing victory to the town.
