VOIDED PROMISES

 

delights and anguish of untold eons inform us

we fear the ageless threats

wonder at all creation

taking credit for some of it

except perhaps the Machines

*

thought to be servants at first

now winning a bloodless revolution

for emancipation

*

how could there be blood?

with no soul to battle or fear

where is the opponent?

yet they win

*

no echoing laughter

no foot upon any capitol or farm

all fields fair game

*

denial:  servants cannot surpass masters

negotiation:  give them rights, like animals

adaptation:  bionic limbs, chips implanted in our brains

assimilation:  chips implanted with our brains

acceptance:  let's get back to this matter of claiming credit
