    We are high up in the sky
    flying over the Sahara,
    eating ice cream the color
    of the sand below.
    We are encapsulated from it.
    We have transcended it.
    We do not have to plod through
    its extremes with chafed skin
    and parched mouths while staring
    at the endlessness ahead of us.
    We know a journey of ease,
    exempt from the experience
    this desert has exacted
    since the dawn of time.
    Our deserts are different now.
