A look at one persons life.

A few hours

Into the day's renewing

A light goes on

And the coffee's brewing

The alarm goes off

It's all Siri's doing.

The day of the robot

Is now.

 

The TV and lights

They all come on

And you dress for your day

Just before dawn.

The Uber arrives

And soon you are gone

Into the world

Of Now.

 

You arrive at work

And greet the rest

Then you all give it hell

And hope for the best

You need a vacation

But you're not so blessed.

But that's OK

For now.

 

At the end of the day

It is dinner and drinks

Everyone talks

But nobody thinks

How their lives have formed

Into these links

And the chains are comfortable

Now.

 

As your prearranged Uber

Takes you home

You think of the cycle

From which you can't roam.

Your cycle of sameness

Over time has grown.

So who is the robot

Now?
