Gustave Whitehead - Poem by Ima Ryma
Gustave Whitehead - a mystery.
Did he beat the Wright Brothers' flight
By a two year 'the first to be'?
According to papers, he might
Have flown a powered winged aircraft
Further and higher than Wrights did.
As some news, it was published aft.
Excitement did not pyramid,
As the case when the Wrights did fly
At Kittyhawk later to fame.
If Whitehead's first flight's not a lie,
Then he got cheated - that's a shame.
The Wright Brothers have come too far
For second now, thanks to PR.
