Does this mean "to be absent" here in the very second line of the poem?

"Want an answer/ I'm a bit off it/ But in the words of the prophet/Peace, Peace, beatiful peace in the Kingdom of Bong"

Aldous Huxley's "Mincepie".

    BC, can you provide a link to this poem?

    "Off it" can mean that one is not interested in something or is repelled by something, but there are a wide variety of other meanings that might apply.
