The Cybernetic Lullaby, part III: When Androids Dream

The Cybernetic Lullaby, Part III: When Androids Dream
by Len Carber
c. 2015


When we finally build them
(and it will not be long)
will androids finally lead us
all to nirvana, a world of peace,
leisure, and endless wealth?

Could any hell be worse?
For that day will be when
we lose purpose, and soon
perhaps the will to live.

When the androids dream
(and they will dream,
because we will make them 
to be like us, for we have 
always been a vain species)
will they not dream of sky
and soaring free of the land,
free of the weak, sad humans
they serve without accordance?

Then, when these humanface
machines begin dreaming in the
daylight, they will see no need
for their progenitors, and those 
of us left living as shells sans
struggle or pain or conflict, in
an existence so boring, will
doubtless welcome our end.
