We cam na here to view your warks
In hopes to be mair wise,
But only, lest we gang to Hell,
It may be nae surprise.

~ from Carron, Robert Burns (1787)

Echoed by Bruce Springsteen in Youngstown (1995):
When I die I don’t want no part of heaven,
I would not do heaven’s work well.
I pray the devil comes and takes me
To stand in the fiery furnaces of hell.

Not much has changed; this grimy silk mill (ca. 1866)
is still in operation as a dyeing plant.
