I'm sorry you were programmed never to trust
 
Bent, beaten, misshapen and left out to rust
 
A toy automaton dragged against the ground
 
The sprockets of your heart have all wound down
 
I see you, you tiny beatiful figurine
 
You're carrying out your tasks, a machine.
 
I watch you clanking ever forward trying to survive
 
I want to kiss your forehead and let you remember, you're alive.
