First Line: We are a menace to you, o civilisation
Last Line: We shall arise and sweep you away!
Subject(s): Civilization


We are a menace to you, O civilisation!
We have seen you—we allow you—we bear with you for a time,
But beware! for in a moment and, when the hour comes, inevitably,
We shall arise and sweep you away!
