Turning 800

From all the kings horses and all the kings men
and castles and Vikings from way back when?
Through trade and money made, sailors who stayed,
building Liverpool though underpaid

Spinning the industrial revolution
into a global phenomenon
Building hope for resolution
by global family evolution

now...

with plane, train and automobile
what promise have we for the future
with buildings made of glass and steel
to cap it all off, cool shore!
