Monster Science

Monster Science

A Lord of Steam and Iron am I
A monster in the land;
While puny men of bone and blood
Are slaves at my command.

The Monster Science is my name
And I trample on the free;
I laugh at the sight of human tears
And Death is my victory!

I love the knell of the factory bell
On the long dark winter night,
With hail and storms and quivering forms
Who toil by candlelight.

Of iron and steam I reign supreme
But a partial King am I:
The few by stealth I heap with wealth
While the masses sicken and die.

From Victoria's Inferno, Raven
No date given--presumably ca 1830
