“And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?”

“What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?”

“Spray painted along the entire side of the Caddy in black was the word”

Dare its deadly terrors clasp!”

In the forests of the night:”

“What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?”
