I am curvilinear, efficient, and graceful in my lines
I am an American engineering marvel
But you believe my beauty only lies as deep as the lawn grass protecting my flanks
You suppose my innards reek of dead river
You think I hum an ugly song
You’re just another one of those fucking tree huggers aren’t you?
Don’t you know I am what matters, I am how the world operates, I am just the way it is
Look at me!
Ponder my size and weight
Feel the river shudder beneath me
Hear me roar with dropping water
See how I suck the river through my lips, chewing it methodically with each turbine
Look at me, motherfucker!
I’ll stand when you fall
You are still not impressed?
