mechanic

white eyes peep from under
accentuated by rings of grease
spanner in hand clang clang
screw here bolt there
oil and grease
master of the small parts that
can a system bring to halt
fixing joining oiling welding
unscrewing and tightening
just the right touch and fix on
all the wanting places
give me the key and
the machine will roar away
in expert hands
all fine-tuned
