What Happened to the Freedom of the Sky?

Businessmen, bankers and other such wankers
grabbed the earth with their greedy fingers
and sold it to each other, including rivers,
lakes and seas (with special inducements
to yacht and golf club members)
until they went off course
and took the freedom of the sky.

Everyone clamoured for a birds-eye
view, trading stocks and bonds for wisps of cloud,
that vanished as they rose up in a crowd
for personally conducted tours
policed by dark angels and bureaucratic types
trained to scrutinise
and brainwash them with fake news and hype.
