consequences

when in the end
the robots snapped
and vowed to do us in

the reason wasn’t
their concern
about our stewardship

of mother earth
or fellow man
or even of machines

(the truth be told
they didn’t trust
themselves in those regards)

no, in the end
the problem that
they couldn’t get beyond

was that we couldn’t
seem to stop
(though they were self aware)

requiring them
to function like
an iPod with a mind

incessantly
compelled to play
our stupid…
stupid…
“music”
