Agedly sagedly
David F Attenborough
said we were doomed with a 
very sad face.

We dragged our knuckles round
uncomprehendingly,
wrapped him in plastic and
launched him to space.

Beaming on hobgoblins

I.

Higgledy piggledy

Lord of the Dance.  

II.

William the Conqueror
Wanted his subjects to
Quail at his power,

Crowing to Londoners
Hyperdespotically, 
“Look, everybody, I’ve
Built me a tower!”

All those things I want to hear.

Bring out passions deep within.

Pull me close and hold me near,

Eternally doomed adrift
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The Mariner repeats his 
Story over and over now.

A sad soul in true agony
Incomprehensible
His heart now dry as dust
To his fate he must bow.
