Why Man Does Not Have Wings

These rhymes could be some simple things
Man not endowed by Nature wings:
He never would have had to build
The means to fly, his dreams fulfilled;
Or turned these planes to reach the stars;
Or feel the thrill of speedy cars;
Or made the ships to cruise the seas;
Or planned the roads and bright cities.
Man's fortunate to walk the ground,
with brains invent his dreams unbound.
