318. Machine and man

  When a machine
Wants to think like a man,
  God feels proud of His Dream-Boat.
   He starts singing and dancing.

  When a man
Wants to think like a machine,
  God feels sorry for man’s unevolving life.
   He buries His Mind and Vital
     In the soil of despair-night
     He drowns His Heart and Soul
   In the giant bosom of failure-sea.
