    "Human beings in a mob
    What's a mob to a king?
    What's a king to a god?
    What's a god to a non-believer?
    Who don't believe in anything?
    We make it out alive
    All right, all right

    No church in the wild
    Tears on the mausoleum floor
    Blood stains the Coliseum doors
    Lies on the lips of a priest
    Thanksgiving disguised as a feast
    Rollin' in the Rolls-Royce Corniche
    Only the doctors got this, I'm hidin' from police
    Cocaine seats
    All white like I got the whole thing bleached
    Drug dealer chic
    I'm wonderin' if a thug's prayers reach
    Is Pious pious 'cause God loves pious?
    Socrates asks, 'Whose bias do y'all seek?'
    All for Plato, screech
    I'm out here' ballin', I know y'all hear my sneaks...."

    "No Church in the Wild," Kanye West and Jay Z

    "In the history of all the arts, there exists a moment of happy equilibrium between the monumental powerfulness-capacity [puissance] and the refinement of form, between the density of beautiful impersonal masses which mean a higher and more peaceful order than our own, and the nuances, secrets, of our psychological life." -- H. Focillon, *The Middle Ages, Roman and Gothic*

    "I wanna be a billionaire so fuckin' bad
    Buy all of the things I never had
    I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
    Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
    Oh, every time I close my eyes
    I see my name in shining lights
    Yeah, a different city every night, oh, right
    I swear, the world better prepare
    For when I'm a billionaire

    Yeah, I would have a show like Oprah
    I would be the host of, everyday Christmas
    Give Travie a wish list
    I'd probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
    And adopt a bunch of babies that ain't never had shit
    Give away a few Mercedes, like, 'Here, lady, have this,'
    And last but not least grant somebody their last wish...."

    "Billionaire" by Travie McCoy

    "he was raised in a swamp, back of the sluigh
    Grew up eating rattlesnake, drinking homemade brew
    Folks bout here call him gator, and everybody knows him well
    Meanest man ever come out a swamp, folks swear he come straight out of hell,
    Well gator mccluskey sitting on a stump (unintelligible) twelve guage pump,
    Sitting on the stump watching out for the law, while they make the best corn liquor you ever saw.'

    "A functor which simply 'forgets' some or all of the algebraic structure of an algebraic object is commonly called a *forgetful* functor (or an *underlying* functor)."
