Idols made of hand

Many workmen Built a huge ball of masonry Upon a mountain-top.

Then they went to the valley below, And turned to behold their work.

“It is grand,” they said; They loved the thing.

Of a sudden, it moved: It came upon them swiftly; It crushed them all to blood.

But some had opportunity to squeal.
