Rudyard Kipling

Song of the Dynamo

How do I know what Order brings
Me into being?
I only know, if you do certain things,
I must become your Hearing and your Seeing; 
Also your Strength, to make great wheels go round, 
And save your sons from toil, while I am bound! 

What do I care how you dispose
The Powers that move me?
I only know that I am one with those
True Powers which rend the firmament above me, 
And, harrying earth, would save me at the last-
But that your coward foresight holds me fast!
