Description

'Plane moves. I don't like the feel of it.
In a car I'd suspect low tyre pressure.'

In this amusing yet profound poem, beloved English poet Ursula Fanthorpe, who wrote under her first initials, U.A., describes the first flight of an unidentified passenger seated next to a pompous bore.

Our lesson plan explains the story of Icarus, which Fanthorpe cleverly inverts to critique mankind's supposedly lofty technological advances.
