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 RG
