This big machine,
it takes my trash,
it takes my bottles too!

This big machine,
it paints the lines
to keep me in my lane!

This big machine,
it builds the bridge
across the big river!

This big machine,
it takes my shit
so far from where I live!

This big machine!

This big machine,
it prints the cash
I use to buy my drugs!

This big machine,
it brings water
and maybe with it lead!

This big machine,
it takes pictures
but mostly not of me!

This big machine,
it brings me light,
I will not be afraid!

I love this big machine!

(NB, there is nobody shouting "I hate this big machine.")
