The Dream Of Powered Flight

In seat 1B aboard this Frontier flight
Where every inch of legroom has a price
I read about the fabled Brothers Wright
Who blazed the trail I’m following tonight
And can’t but think their struggles toward the air,
Though mighty and essential, don’t compare
To those of one whose handheld e-device
Has boarded with a charge that won’t suffice
For finishing the book. Life isn’t fair.
