The Robot’s Lament


My mind whirls, made of cogs and wires

Never resting, never pausing

Running diagnostics, analysing data

It never ends


Only when the wires are burnt out

And the cogs worn down

Will I get the chance to stop


Only then, when I am of no use

Beyond repair and require replacing

Will they put me aside

And allow me to rest
