Good Robot Usses


Built right and well-designed
these, our shiny incarnations
meet at appointed times
hair done right, bright smiles.
They click and chime;
fit together tight
while watching movies—
your choice, my place, click chime.

Our machine kind
can make nice work of dinner
sit straight, and mind our manners
choose proper music, decent wine.
They whir and grind;
plunge and shine
in concert, doing dishes—
I wash, you dry, whir grind.

Innovation comes,
and just in time
we must advance, we fragile gadgets
uncross wires, strengthen spines.
Til then we hum and whine
and wait to be good robot usses;
the kind to benefit the species—
You one, I oh, hum whine.
