On the Wings of Winged Victory

by Felipe Alvarez de Toledo

The Goddess Nike watches over us
As we stomp our way through town
On the Wings of winged victory;
See the lights flash above us?

Our path leaves a trace in the concrete,
A yarn that is tracing our steps,
Yet none of these steps we'll repeat,
And soon we'll wonder
How far we had leapt.

Well, to make it this far is a gargantuan feat--
The sparkling drinks, the shining smiles
Are all rendered at Our feet--
We've travelled for miles;

So let us Sing, let us Dance, let us Play,
Let us think ourselves Gods on the street--
For tonight we shall sleep in defeat
And return to inescapable day.
