Know your own Machinery

darbydo32: Your comment no.5 is wonderful.Still more exciting and admirable is your comparing the body as a carburator of a car. I am reproducing below a poem which is self-explanatory. The title of the poem is " KNOW YOUR OWN MACHINERY." Here it goes: YOU KNOW THE MODEL OF YOUR CAR,--- YOU KNOW JUST WHAT IT' S POWERS ARE,---YOU TREAT IT WITH A GREAT DEAL OF CARE,---NOR TAX IT MORE THAN WHAT IT CAN BEAR.---BUT AS FOR SELF;THAT IS DIFFERENT,---YOUR MECHANISM MAY BE BENT,---YOUR CARBURATOR GONE TO GRASS,---YOUR ENGINE JUST A RUSTY MASS.---YOUR WHEELS MAY WOBBLE, AND BOGS---BE HANDED OVER TO THE DOGS,---AND YOU SKIP AND SKID AND SLIDE,---WITHOUT A THOUGHT OF THINGS INSIDE!---WHAT FOOLS INDEED WE MORTALS ARE,---TO LAVISH CARE UPON A CAR,---WITH NEVER A BIT OF TIME TO SEE,---ABOUT OUR OWN MACHINERY. (By John Hendrik.) From: T.S.Sundaram
