Sharks of the Air

Oh not again!
This sickening fright of height please
Fade away like dreams of a lazy man
Some thousand feet below
A sight of vacuum seems so terrific, a daymare!
Thick white smoky-breath envelops me
In the belly of the flying shark
Swimming through the oceanic sky

Oh not again!
My frail heart beats faster than a locomotive
Cracking a fringe rib craving an escape
Now snows of sweats froze me
Yet I sat, luxuriously uncomfortable
Trying to force a fearful and friendly smile
While looking away the steel-fish’s eyes
Playing-cool, while it swum through the oceanic sky

Alas, it made way ashore
I, highly spirited but scared to move, damn not again!
