About the Book Query for a Machine Age The frail organic world from seed to bloom Puts a rich variety on display, While steel perfection in machines has room For but one change alone - and that´s decay. Why should we standardize our messy ways To calm routines and try to treat our hearts (As specialists would have us do these days) Like subservient, replaceable parts? Unless (as William Blake sometimes expressed Before such logic human minds controlled) The victims of Urizen do not rest Till they at last become what they behold.
