I watched in terror as the steel beam above the engine came loose. It was supposed to be a grand day. The new, state of the art double engine that could pull three times as many cars and it was in danger of destruction. The crowd of men, all in their fancy top hats and tails screamed and pointed as the creatures from nightmare reached through the hole they made to pluck the engineers who had climbed up to cheer in pride at their massive folly. I could have told them not to celebrate man's accomplishments but they didn't listen.
