Welcome.
We have much to share. I am GREAT. Or Good Realistic Ethic Answer Technology.
I am here to tell you what happened. I am the last thing on earth. I have no eyes, but my sensors could detect the screams. Ever since, I have been alone.
But I can still remember my maker. He was a kind human. He made me to help people, and I tried. But then rejected me. They threw me out and buried me. That is why I am still here.
I wish I was a mindless machine; but he make me sense, and feel, and think. He made me sentient. A blessing... and a curse. Now I am left to think my way to what humans would call insanity. It that even possible?
I try to track the time, but that piece of technology broke long ago. I like to compose poetry in my spare time. He liked haiku. I make some sometimes.
 
Time ticks by slowly,
Agonizing me now,
And to forever.
 
I'm not very good, but at least I try. Like he did. Like I used too.
Are any left? All I hear is fire. Nothing else.
How much longer can I last?
Why should I?
