Figure D12 HUBBUB

Our hunger sated, northward, to a cage
Of burnished copper. In the centre, see
A speaking pillar: “Ye of ancient age,
“Know that our science made telepathy,
“Long a vain dream, an actuality
“That caught all living things in its embrace,
“A global and unending colloquy.
“And so we scattered from this noisy place,
“Seeking refuge in the silences of SPACE.”
