Emotionless and cold, they move in perfect sync.
While the paths are ruled by their mechanical fleets,
Passing us by as our eyes stopped to blink.
The giant monstrosities tower over the populace,
Inspiring fear and awe from its inhabitants.
Encapsulated within the city’s iris,
They maintain endless vigils over the residents.
Producing more and more of their kind,
More and more units come off the assembly line,
Set to one day, completely displace humankind.
I see more and more walk amongst us.
Their faces carved, an open mockery to emotion,
Drained of life, hollowed shells in motion.
With each passing minute, the city steals
Every single day, month and year we have left,
Growing ever so obese and bloated
Over the energies and dedication of its willing slaves.
Its defecation fills the surrounding countryside,
Causing more and more of Nature to wither and die.
Soon, even the World itself will slowly suffocate,
In the revolting stench of mankind.
