Explosive Contrivance

Poetry By: Miss Trevize

A tribute to the internal combustion engine!

The roars

and bellows

of the furnace

give life.


In the dark,

now light,

in the cold,

now warmth.


The war drum

of power and

a stampede



The elixir of

life, distilled

from the dead,

fueling the living.


Like Vulcan's

hammer the great

piston falls

with a clatter.


Seldom has man

created so terrible

and great a

creature as this.


And the great

cogs sync,

like lovers,

long separated.


The sweet

reunion does naught

but increase the





the wheels

turn anew!
