OH, THE HUMANITY?

Lighter than air over the New city,
the grace and beauty of her opulent
decent looked at in awe by the millions
below, a slow pan from right to left.
Up in the air they are unaware
that they are the talk of the town.
Down on the ground, folks like ants
can’t get a clue. Oh, the humanity?
They do not believe there’s a chance
of air borne disaster from the sky.
