The most beautiful things in the world are made of metal,
The wedding band that bound the impossible,
And the tiny pace maker that fixed the tiny heart.
The metal vase that holds flowers over her grave,
And the pole that flies the white flag overseas.
The most horrible things in the world are made of metal,
The gun that shot down the serving solider,
And the bunker that concealed the bomb.
The planes that flew into the towers
And the lovers who never would come home.
