Part 1

 

There is a machine in the press shop,

Nicknamed K4,

It has a mind and personality,

All of its own,

It likes being caressed with allen keys and spanners,

But don't ever use a hammer on it,

It dos'nt like it and you may make it angry,

You would'nt like it when its angry,

It has a force of an angel a thousand ton,

It forms and stamps with a thunderous din,

So don't forget to put your earplugs in,

When the flywheel and clutch engage,

Giving their power over to the ram

Instead of calling it k4 it should be called the "mother" in the real bad sense. Only those wee hours news paper printing bat-folk can talk about their machines with that kind of tenderness, although as a sailor engineer I would have punched the mouth talking bad about mine!
Nice part one.

Georg
