Poem Elemic

How long can this elephant
Float in the sky of New York
Having burst from its room
And grown nearly as large
As the moon?

The people's derivitive looms
Like an impossible dirigible,
A Macy's balloon,
While the bankers blink in
Morlocked gloom.

Can neglect bring it down,
Or scorn, or money?

Will it rise sublimely
To vaster, higher skies?

For it to prosper beyond fear
It must command the very atmosphere!
