Appearing from a hazy sky

In lonely rocky desert dry

Creature strange yawning stretch

Of its extended arms and neck

Whirring voice slowly dynamic

On rotating wheels hydraulic

God of war conquer collapse.

Of valleys craters and ice caps

Ruddy complexion pinkish hue

Thin atmosphere’s horizon view

Probe and sample craggy crust

Sent miles away to analyst

Body mind and owner three

Work not independently

But another truly operates

For they are really aggregates

They are parts and not the whole

Move by central remote control


Lord, thou art the operator and “I” the machine. By thy presence all limbs move mounted as they are on thy machine. So too the galaxies, stars and planets. Move me as thy will until that “I” yields and I sit where you sit. Glory unto thee!
