Animal FarmHuman rule;
So harsh, so cruel;
With whips and guns and little food,
Happiness is seldom found any place around;
Down on Manor Farm.
Old Major came and told us all,
How to make our world at peace;
Expell mankind and claim the farm;
Soon enough the animals revolted,

The embodiment of injury waiting to happen, an invitation to a tetanus shot... the city never hauled it away. No one ever wants anywhere near it; it radiates an eerie sense of calculating watchfulness.
