On foot and equine, over hill and dale,
Plodding and toiling through the centuries,
The Dark Ages to the Enlightenment,
Enslavement gives way to man’s liberties.

Fuelled by desire, propelled by the mind,
A continuous ribbon of cement,
Freedom and reason and justice and truth,
Not the dictates of God or Government.

A metallic eagle gliding through space,
Over manmade mountains of glass and steel,
The sky is lit by an invisible force,
Moving man and machine on wing and wheel.
