This is inspired by the classes I teach
It is men, muscle, and machine
Grind them slow
Grind them thorough
Until they are one

Spread it thin
In fields and mountains
On the sea and
In the air

Sow with anger
Scatter seeds of envy
Dig in roots of power
And stalks of ambition

Water with the blood of the next generation
And the tears of fathers and mothers, widows and orphans
Cut down the growth
And grind again.
