A Remarkable Prophecy. (1921)

From the September 1921 issue of the Socialist Standard
“ Soon shall thy arm, unconquered steam,
  Drag the slow barge or drive the rapid car,
Or on wide waving wings expanded, bear
  The flying chariot through the fields of
Fair crews triumphant, leaning from above.
  Shall wave their fluttering kerchiefs as
they move,
Or warrior bands alarm the gaping crowd
   And armies shrink beneath the shadowy
' cloud.”—Erasmus Darwin, 1791.
