The Fifth Element


Above the common, lowly air
That we mere mortals breathe,
Is the rarified, pure Aether
Where the Gods in anger seethe!
Their Fury at being ignored,
It sounds in the very Void!
Space is filled by this Chord
Of Dissonance employed,
To bring us all to our knees
In age old submission,
As on some Ancient frieze
Of Gods and Men and superstition!
But the Aether’s omnipresence
Was challenged and defeated
By Men of fame in Science
And so the Heavens were depleted!
