The Horrid Voice of Science
"There's machinery in the butterfly; There's a mainspring to the bee; There's hydraulics to a daisy, And contraptions to a tree. "If we could see the birdie That makes the chirping sound With x-ray, scientific eyes, We could see the wheels go round." And I hope all men Who think like this Will soon lie Underground.
