Watch them run!
Oh, our job is never done,
For our roadways go rolling along!
While you ride;
While you glide:
We are watching "down inside",
So your roadways keep rolling along!
Oh, it's Hie! Hie! Hee!
The rotor men are we -
Check off your sectors loud and strong!
One! Two! Three!
Anywhere you go
You are bound to know
That your roadways are rolling along!
KEEP THEM ROLLING!
That your roadways are rolling along!'</div>
From the Roads Must Roll by Robert Heinlein 1940.
I re-read the short story today and decided to make a MOC of a rotorman with his rotor. They keep the veins of America rolling, taking people and goods to their destination on massive belts.
It's a very good story, I have it in the book 'The Best of Robert Heinlein 1939-1942'
