once sigh

once sigh

by alan rodman


once sigh built a railroad
made it run on time
buddy can you paradigm?

yesterday England burned no
coal for power generation
for the first time since 19th century

industrial revolution
can we still say revolution on here?

time seen sideways is meat
team spelled
backwards is really might

the roof is holding up the clouds
if the sky collapses
the roof will be superfluous

it’s? oh well
what is is what is
or will be in time

but time
backwards is Emit
