Machines

missiles | deviate |
path | error |

leading | rigid adherence | only |
thereby| success | achieved |

leader | repeats | in | leader’s trail |
machines may fail | disaster |

wreak devastation |

work accomplished | may appear
simple | but | reflection will reveal |
difficulties |

work | work | placed in | hand of
the pilot himself -- | is | trying |

machine | must keep his eyes glued |
must | keep | touch with | his | compass |

positive of | position | direction |
judge of | distances | heights |


Definite.

Run.
Step hard.
Move--
Meant to make impressions.

Would there be a foot-
Print your words.
Permanently.
Mark the mud.

Left on the
Path.
Let yourself become
Perpetual.

I will.
