The Universal Mechanism

Behold the universal mechanism!

A grand effort.

The glorious creation of time and space!

Where everything moves, and everything turns,

and everything fits in its proper place.

Behold, the far-reaching reality!

Where life turns to death

and magic turns to science,

where war turns to peace, to war, to peace, to war–

Behold! The great dinosaur that is man

who thinks, somehow, that his invention was planned

and that the asteroid sits in the palm of his hand.

Or does it?

It may if he might.

For the universe has no end in his sight.

Lo, if only he could behold

the machine



Behold the universal mechanism!


Enjoy your stay.
