every home should be a fortress,

equipped with all the latest engines
for keeping nature at bay
versed in all ancient magic, the arts of quelling
the Dark Lord and his hungry

animivorous chimeras. (Any brute
can buy a machine in a shop,
but the sacred spells are secret to the kind,
and if power is what we wish

they won't work). The ogre will come in any case

The Common Life, W. H. Auden
