Didcot Power Station

What vasty thighs outspread to give thee birth,
DIDCOT, thou marvel of the plain?

Didcot Power Station, Didcot, OX11

Colossal funnels of the steamship EARTH,
Thy consummate immensity
Enshrines the rare propensity
Of fumes to form eternal acid rain!

From Kit Wright’s Ode to Didcot Power Station (2003)
