Shavings falling to the floor, like snow on a stark winter's field.

No room for any type of error, these parts never seem to yield.

Air blows so loud at times it is very hard to hear.

Running these particular parts, one of my biggest fears.

Big boss finally home again, Oh man, I love it what a deal.

Makes the little boss jump through hoops, oh, and he makes him heel.

This is one of the greatest days that we have ever had.

Maybe this will start something, a trend or some sort of fad.

Do you mean "running" or "ruining"? Ruining, I would think, sometimes a widget is more expensive than a worker's daily wage. Are you really a wage slave? sometimes those with mindless work save their creative energies for the blank page. A privileged insight into the tedious minutiae of the industrial cog in the big corporate gearbox ... Don't dream too much about the beautiful white shavings on the stark field, I don't want you to suffer an industrial accident. See how realistically you've portrayed your scene to me? Thank you.
