     Not far from here, by a white sun, behind a green star, lived the 
Steelypips, illustrious, industrious, and they hadn't a care: no spats 
in their vats, no rules, no schools, no gloom, no evil influence of the 
moon, no trouble from matter or antimatter -- for they had a 
machine, a dream of a machine, with springs and gears and perfect 
in every respect. And they lived with it, and on it, and under it, and 
inside it, for it was all they had -- first they saved up all their atoms, 
then they put them all together, and if one didn't fit, why they 
chipped at it a bit, and everything was just fine...
