Daedalus With One Wing


You hear songs here:

Daedalus With One Wing

Wise Daedalus - with only one wing done -
fled before a mob
determined to string him up
and piƱata the hell out of the man.
Running for his life,
he donned the one wing and,
triple-jumping to the cliff's edge,
launched himself,
leaving the bullish killers marooned.

As he made into the open air,
single wing outstretched on one side,
inadequate hand flapping
on the other,

he knew well that all
the weight of science and reason
would not support him.
