Doesn't it get lonely, riding into the sun
on a single raft for one?

Were Icarus around these days
surely he would plan ahead
probably traveling light.

Were Icarus headed sun ward
likely he would have headphones
iPod filled with old Beatles tunes

Good day sunshine
Here comes the sun
The fool on the hill

Were Icarus to leave orbit
CNN would provide updates, although
he would be increasingly out of range

Were Icraus' wax rocket to melt
prior to reaching his destination
a search party would be sent out

Hubris being no reason
to deny him a welcome home party and
a new set of wings

*lyric from Laura Viers --Where Gravity is dead
