DUST IS DUST

A robot known as Robbie Well he came to stay at home with me And during his vacation He began to show frustration For he saw to his dismay Piles of dust hidden away Beneath the beds Beneath the chairs Beneath the tables too Most probably had been there Since nineteen seventy two For that is when I read a quote By English writer and raconteur Quentin Crisp that was his name Of ‘Naked Civil Servant’ fame He said that after just four years One never needs to dust again At the touch of a button dear Robbie woke up For this was his signal to suck up my muck Such an innovation A mind blowing creation Having a Robbie at my beck and call He is so obliging with the service he’s providing No matter the hour when his name I call Loving to clean never minding at all All the dust and the mites well he sucks them all up then into his truck he empties my muck Returning to his docking station there was no sign of jubilation I began to wonder I began to ponder Has he a life somewhere out yonder For dust is dust it's always there and surely always will be I called his name he came to me and through my door set Robbie free ~~~~~ Written – tongue in cheek - on 13th August 2020 after a friend lent me her robot cleaner… Contest Strand Completely New (21) Sponsor Brian Strand N/A
