The whole is greater than just the sum of all its parts.
They work like well-oiled machines.
Well worn into all their various jobs.
One million tools rolled into one.
Part shovel, part hammer.
Part clamp, part blade.
With the memory of thousands of movements,
They dance through their tasks.
Docile as a lamb or ferocious as a lion
They master all aspects of life.
As scarred and creased as any number of moons in the galaxy.
They bear old hurts easily
And though the surface parts easily.
It comes back twofold in the blink of an eye.
