The Horrid Voice of Science

by Vachel Lindsay, 1919

"There's machinery in the
   There's a mainspring to the
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

  And I hope all men
  Who think like this
  Will soon lie
