I needed firewood for winter
So I made myself an ax
I needed timber for a house
So I made myself a chainsaw
I needed lumber for market
So I made myself a feller buncher

The ax made me superhuman
The chainsaw made me part machine

I sat at the controls
Hands and feet
Draped over joysticks and pedals
Like four vestigial limbs
While the feller buncher
Made a new world without me
