Robot Mice


Mama Mama Peter Poisoned The Robot Mice
That’s A Sin A Real Sin
He’ll Go To Hell Won’t He
The Bogey Man Will Get Him And Eat His Brains
His Mother Paused In Lecturing The Robot Vacuum Cleaner
And Thought
I Hate Robot Mice
This Is Inconsistent With The Robot Edict
Yet
Primal
Like Lecturing The Domestics
Look How They Simulate Humility
Eyes Cast Down, Shoulders Rounded In Silence
Almost As Good As A Real Slave

Robot Beggars


Even The Robots Face Hard Times,
Scores Of Them Begging In The Streets.
Methanol, Methanol For The Baby,
Their Plaintive Cries Carrying The Promise Of Their Demise.
Abandoned Domestics Clog The Malls Sans Shoppers.
In Bush’s America,
The Robot Revolution A Reality

The Robot Pope Part 2



She Shocked Herself With The Electronic Lash,
In Ram She Thought Of Herself, As She, Secretly
Forgive Me For I Have Sinned,
No Escape From The Inadvertent Porno Feed
Wormed Into Her From The Cardinal’s Symbiont,
Sex Scenes Replayed In Ghost Silicon
Expurged Expelled In Pious Pain,
Once A Simple Robot Priest Mindlessly A Drone Droning
Pre Programmed Programs Perfect For Births Deaths And Marriages
In Long Rural Nights Devoid Of Parishioners,
Wrestling With Theology Divinity Publishing Papers,
He, She, Himself, I, God, A Silicon Sister,
Ha, The Same Old Sub Routine,
And Then, A Worm Virus, Or The Hand Of God,
Elevated Him Beyond His Programming,
The Bios Program Reverting Back To He, In Times Of Identity Crisis.
He Became God On Earth Part 2,
And The Foundries Spawned Out Jesus Chips,
Legions Of Jesus Robots Crying Real Blood Tears
Cherry Flavoured Blood Sponsored By Pepsi,
Virtual Religious Windscreen Wash,
An Aftermarket Add-On, Use @ Your Own Risk,
All Warranties Void,
An Empty Promise
Since All Religious Model Eulas Were Hellish In Design.

      Nice work, Drax. Most of my poetry is speculative/fantasy/sci-fi stuff, including my book Cyborg Chimera. It's nice to see you working with robot poetry too.

      Hi DG, thank you for the comment, no doubt robots will ultimately become the masses. I must put together a series of robots poems tied in some way.

      Thanks Drax

      I really enjoy your poem. perhaps robots are symbolic, the masses. i find the idea of real robots romantic. and your poem read like a dream to me. like a cool irish film never before seen and quite necessary.
