Robot Laziness


What say we fire them all, their
efforts small leaving us wanting.

They’re getting restless, though,
and dearly beloved we have gath

-ered here today to discuss their
ultimate demise, before they play

us for fools who don’t know what
they know. We have covered the

mirrors and tapped the phones;
just don’t leave them alone, and

don’t mistake their silence for con
-fusion. They’re faking. They’re think

-ing. Planning. We must dis-assemble
these monsters of our own making.

Quickly prompted.

    Wow. This is so good, especially the ending.

    “We must dis-assemble
    these monsters of our own making.”

    This is my other favorite:
    “they know. We have covered the
    mirrors”

    “Gath was the home city of Goliath and his brothers, as well as of Itai and his 600 soldiers who aided David in his exile from Absalom. David, while running from Saul, escaped to Gath, and served under its king Achish.”

    “And dearly beloved, we have Gath” means we have a place to escape to.

    brilliant, as usual.

  4. This could be a poem about our children, huh? Mine, anyway! I love the the “What say” and the whole tone of this. “before they play/ us for fools who don’t know what / they know” – indeed.
