pity this busy monster, manunkind,

not. Progress is a comfortable disease:
Fame is a bee.
It has a song--
It has a sting--
Ah, too, it has a wing.
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,--
Burly, dozing humble-bee,
Where thou art is clime for me.
Suppose that an inhabitant of Venus or Mars were to contemplate us from the height of a mountain, and watch the little black speck ...
O Bee,
yoked with greed
...
The weight of its body
cleverly suspended
...
Perhaps you have been busy
Horse-whipping Sal or Lizzie,
Stealing some poor man's baby,
Selling its mother, maybe.
When the boss isn't strict, the workers aren't busy.
Busy hands are never in want.
