Are there any theories on what motivated O’Shaughnessy to write Ode (also called 'We are the Music Makers') ?

Basically, he was not a "world-forsaker" himself. I read that he worked as a herpetologist. So was it that he got inspired by his friends' lives, the way society (probably) looked down upon them, low earning etc. to write the poem?
