The Kingdom of The Air

In The Kingdom of the Air

An industrial liturgy

Mocks the towers left down here

Bound by land and sea.


Angels, white, with metal wings

Above high mountains flying,

Soar beyond the Earthly things,

Laughing, singing, dying.

Poet, shut up!

You are insane

Your angel is an aeroplane

And it rules the Kingdom of the Air

Look up, look up, look up, despair!

Your angel is an aeroplane:

It splutters, jumps, flys (again)

And conquers the Kingdom of the Air,

Making magic mundane.
