Can a man be killed of petty nuisances?

Yes, if the source is the People.

Can a man be killed of stifling tension?

Yes, if it is provided by the People.

Can a man be killed of sheer isolation?

Yes, if it is of the People.

Can a man be killed of illicit love?

Yes, if he is judged by the People.

Can a man be killed of his belief?

Yes, if it is opposed by the People.

A man may be killed by the People,

By organic flesh and blood,

By the darkness and light of Their souls,

But may a man be killed by machines?

By inorganic rock, By unfeeling metal?

Yes, if it is wished so by the People.
