Abrasive Hawk

What gallant form from vaunted perch doth alight Leaving tailwind that unassuming gawkers affright Whose tawny shadow the sun's rays doth blight; Swarthy silhouette shading glint so erudite Whose tan-welted oars the azure seas doth smite; With swift strokes the ethereal waves doth unrequite Whose beige shield occludes satin rampart's line of sight; O'er satin folds his opaque image doth highlight What spindling machine doth wind's billowy currents spite, With each sweeping motion a cylinder doth ignite What grainy visage doth earth's footstool beknight, With majestic crown his diminutive subjects delight What predator drone spreads its cerebral kite; Soaring fowl, creeping ermine safe sanctuary to slight Whose steely eyes sky's tenants doth frivolously indict; His insatiable, rapacious appetite to expedite
