Social engineering With a human face Everyone except me Knows exactly why they’re here The order of life is transparent An ant farm between two plates of glass There’s no unemployment office in this town No old folks home either The common workers sleep in barracks If they lose their jobs they lose their beds In the long subarctic winter The human moles Digging the underground powerhouses See the sun only once a week The pay is fabulous But there’s nothing to spend it on.
