A hardy and reliable puller

On streets made of potholes and “no crossing” signs

Which nobody heeds


Maybe it is true that it is

To a man what it is to a warrior

In a horse-drawn chariot


Certainly the stronger and faster

Gives the charioteer a clearer vision

Of triumph


Only this is a war

Where his people battle on smog-permeated streets

And stand on highways beside

“no loading and unloading” signs



For their winged charioteer

To lead them to deliverance.
