"How can I help it?" implored the Clockwork man, in despair. "They made me like this. I don't want to alarm you鈥攂ut, you know, it alarms me sometimes. You can't imagine how trying it is to feel that at any moment you might change into something else鈥攕ome horrible tree-climbing ancestor. The thing ought not to happen, but it's always possible.

How many times, in the course of a lifetime, would he repeat that operation? And he would always stand in exactly the same way, with his legs straddled apart, and his elbows spanning out like flappers. He would always pass the razor over his face in a certain manner, avoiding those places where even the sharpest blade boggled a little, proceeding with the same mechanical strokes until the job was once more accomplished.

Your Comments

The Clockwork man bowed stiffly. "Thank you. Of course, I'm a little better than I was, but my ears still flap occasionally."

It seemed to us that if we could do away with death and disease, with change and decay, then all our troubles would be over. So they did that for us, and we've stopped the same as we were, except that time and space no longer hinder us."
