And the Wright brothers said they thought they had invented
something that could make peace on earth
(if the wrong brothers didn’t get hold of it)
When I look down
from the airplane window
I see a map
The airline ticket officer asks
to the lady passenger,
' what seat are you comfortable to bulk with? '.
The lady replies wiseacrely, '
Like an airplane, bravely take off,
Reaching your goal, with much passion;
Endure the storm, the turbulence,
The rugged air, and affliction.
The sheep-cloud being pushed by wind
her cotton tail wandering across the sky.
I've made a paper airplane
With wings of Crayola blue
I made it just for me
To fly away with you.
An airplane crashes
Lives are sadly lost forever
Nothing but pain, sorrow, and grief
Tears are falling endlessly
It's not even a cute baby—
No cherubic redeeming qualities,
Just drool, set on course through
Gummy gap-toothed no return.
An airplane flying overhead
Is vibrating some things in my house,
As they all tap their mechanical, molecular fingers;
Speaking in a sort of rapid fire morse code
