Who or What Am I?
~ By, Anon Y. Muss ~
I am your greatest helper, Or your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward,
Or I'll drag you down to failure.
I am at your command.
Half the tasks that you do,
You might just as well hand over to me.
I will do them quickly and correctly.
I am easily managed.
You must merely be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done.
After a few lessons, I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great people.
And alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great, I have made great.
And those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine.
But I work with all the precision of a machine.
Plus the intelligence of a person.
You may run me for profit, or run me for ruin.
Makes no difference to me!
Just take me, and train me, and be firm with me
And I will lay the work done at your feet.
But you be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Who or what am I?
