CHAPTER XVII - Fourth Hymn and the Bishop

We work with their machines, we work in their fields,
They give us pesos made of Mexican silver.
They are the clever ones.

Doyou love them then?

We love them not, and never.
Their faces arc ugly, yet they make wonderful things.
And their wills are like their machines of iron.
What can we do?

I see dark things rushing across the country.

Yea, Lord I Even trains and canriones and automobiles.

Trains and camiones, automobiles and aeroplanes.
How nice! says the peon, to go rushing in a train l
How nice, to get in the camion, and for twenty centavos, to be gone !
How nice, in the great cities, where all things rush, and huge lights flare
bright, to wander and do nothing!
How nice to sit in the cire, where the picture of all the world dances before
the eyes!
How nice if we could take all these things away from the foreigners, and possess them!
Take back our lands and silver and oil, take the trains and the factories and the automobiles
And play with them all the time !
How nice !

Oh, fools ! Mexicans and peons !
Who are you, to be masters of machines which you cannot make?
Which you can only break !
Those that can make are masters of these machines.
Not you, poor boobs.

How have these palefaces, yellowfaces crossed the waters of the world?
Oh, fools! Mexicans and peons, with muddy hearts !
Did they do it by squatting on their hams?
You do nothing but squat on your hams, and stare with vacant eyes, and
drink fire-waters, and quarrel and stab.
And then run like surly dogs at the bidding of paleface masters.

Oh, dogs and fools, Mexicans and peons !
Watery-hearted, with wishy-washy knees.
Sulky in spirit, and inert.
What are you good for, but to be slaves, and rot away?

You are not worth a god!
Lo! the universe tangles its great dragons,
The dragons in the cosmos are stirring with anger again.
