Iron Birds

I lived in a time
When my father’s farthest
Were of iron birds tearing
Through the skies

As the ages passed
The fantasy drew nearer
To reality
And more distant
From that distant past

I saw empires rise
Those same empires fall
Crippled by their selfishness
As souls burned in their own filth
I felt the air grow heavy
With their cries

So it has been
Entire civilizations come

And go
I live now in the age of iron birds
That my father fantasized of
So long ago
