about

Fate condemns each man to a station

And so it falls to me:
To serve out these years as custodian to history
To stoke the fires which burn
In the bellies of horrid machines that turn
Silent and huge, aloft in the gloaming
That stretches above all the slumbering bodies

The hand of the mighty
Does not question its purpose
I am the fist that makes flesh
The decree of the sermon

And so it falls to you:
To shelter in sheets and quietude
To flourish and lounge, indifferent to
Those little creatures whose bodies yield
Under the force of the gears concealed
Within those mighty engines
That shield you from demands for penance
As above your bed they hang suspended

Fate condemns each man to a station

Ask not what I do, my brother
The peace shall fall to you, my brother
For the burden has fallen to me
