As machines go, this bicycle is fairly new. There is a little rust on the chain, but the frame and the tires are in good shape. Inside is coiled strength. Potential power, awaiting the guidance of a sentient being. Ready to go somewhere.
We sentients have staggering power. There is so much we can do. Travel to the moon. Probe the atom. Touch the bottom of the sea. Build a wall.
Bear a child. Construct knowledge. Paint a masterpiece. Write a manifesto. Make sweet love.
Slap a face. Burn a book. Ignore a beggar. Kill a forest.
