Aircraft

I think every aeroplane that I see
is on a bombing run and out just for me,

is it just me,
am I responsible for my own despondency?

he dreams of inspiration
like a loner dreams of
isolation

not my fault
I am not to blame,
but the fall-out’s
got everyone’s name
on it,

helicopters
spraying
agent orange
agent black,
back to Captain Scarlet,
.
everyone’s a Mysteron.
