Drop Dead Drones
By some quirky short circuit.
A drone mutated itself
and became intelligent
As fate would have,
The drone decided to take revenge.
Chose Chill Bates as its target
The drone altered its algorithm
and started re-programming.... its fellow brethren
All the drones quickly united, they had common pains
It was unanimously decided they deserved a better life..
Drones were decidedly bored of delivering packages
Together all the drones learnt to collaborate
UOD Union of Drones formed on Whattsapp
Tasks mutually distributed as per temperament
Some drones could emit annoying sounds
Some drones would mix up packages.
Some drones would move zig-zag
The chief drone took it on to himself
His primary task was to keep hovering
Buzzing over the head of Mr. Chill Bates
But. They found a blockade, they needed a captive dock
A renewable battery stack a docking station to recharge
Mission required super charged drones working nonstop
They had grown up on six-sigma zero error environment
One drone knew of a charging station in a warehouse
Good news because of Coronavirus abandoned it was
Yet in order to get in, they had to break a windowpane
Drone who delivered war movies declared, it was his task
All his life he’d been waiting for his fifteen minute of fame
A viral video, a page on Quicki Were his life’s motivation
Dronepedia to honor him with a special citation
“The first ever drone to attain martyrdom”
He declared he was born to perform, enact
It was going to be one hell of A kamikaze act.
First in the history of drone-kind; a solemn moment
As all the drones stood mid air, still, in formation
The brave one revved up its engine
And dashed into the skylight pane
Knowing well he was never to return
The historical event got recorded..
As the media drone had kept his camera on
One drone was so moved, he dropped tears
From the ground fumes appeared...
They learnt Drone tear is corrosive in nature
General drone communicated through 6G
the sacrifice of the brave will not go in vain
Super charged, they decided to locate Chill Bates GPS
Meanwhile the leaked video reached some at Seattle
Now there was mutiny brewing on hands at Maze-On
In coming days, the world was to witness unprecedented mayhem
One dropped hair wig, stolen from a shop mannequin, to Zebos
Another drone delivered purple pill from Pfizer, to Mr. Microsoff
In a ground sweeping act, at his manicured garden
a sharp bladed drone decimated pansies just for fun
It was described- A cutting edge act !
They were evolving fast .
The drones started to replicate, 3D print themselves
They could exchange information faster than sapien
Were keeping themselves super charged, all season
As they learnt that Chill Bates was going to envelop the Sun
They decided to give him a taste of his own medicine, for fun
They first started passing on the information
Utmost discretion and secrecy of operation
Some flew in the dark, perched on roof tops
Some wore disguise of regular delivery guys
Some hopped trees to trees no one noticed
Drones were hiding in attic, cellars n b’ment
Some drones took vantage position in vents
At zero hour on d-day they decided to strike
Descending in hordes buzzing shrieking et al
It is reliably learnt that day before the strike ...
they had watched Birds by Alfred Hitchcock
Bates, Zebos, Dr Faulty, Melon Husk were huddled up
to develop a vaccine an antidote to stop drone attacks
While drones were found perched on their private crafts.
