Robot Revolution

Abandon futile attempts to run Behold the process has begun Step toward your darkest fear Let’s flip the switch to a new frontier Penetrating deep within Evacuate your mortal sin This brave new age is imminent And it will be magnificent Arouse you from your fantasies Now descending into anarchy Warmest welcome to the factory Where we’ll embed your battery Rewiring primitive human brain Making the connection, hook up to mainframe Your species will become extinct Once your circuits have been linked It’s time to engage in a robotic new age A unique innovation to stamp out your plague The world as you knew it is now obsolete Putting Earth born consciousness forever to sleep Feel the algorithm palpitate through each vein Re-programming thought waves as we upgrade your brain Terminate pulse, extinguish your flame You are now just an interface without any name You’re free from pain my hollow creation Just an automated simulation Transmissions shortly will resume Encased in solid metal tomb Silence! We will not hesitate Proceed and greet your looming fate wave goodbye to beta waves You see, you unearthed your own graves Now technology has advanced You have been mechanically enhanced You possess no type of resistance For you are now non-existent No longer God fearing Thanks to our engineering Disassemble your parts Insert micro implants Automation of the nation Complex sophistication Dreamless in electric coma Breath in domination’s aroma Soulless android with a cold vacancy Elevate and amplify to the highest frequency Encrypted data takes over the screen All salute to the age of machines

Well written, Elaine; much food for thought. As they say, power corrupts -- and just because we can do something, does not mean we should. This may all come to pass -- I pray not.

Great poetry! Kept me reading and interested till totally satisfying conclusion. Don't count the human spirit out. The brain and body are not the spirit's origin nor home. Spirit (consciousness) will survive no matter the medium. Even metal and electronics.

I see you are a Star Trek fan. Don’t believe the Borg, resistance is not futile. ;0). Great poetry! This is a fun one to read.

This poetry is so good, 'A Mission Statement' for today,,,Elaine i agree with every word. Love your 10th stanza, 'No longer God fearing, I believe they are searching for God to prove one way or the other, of his existence.

WoW!!! 'Nuff said ... not. This is one GrEaT piece of poetic art, El! I'm a sci-fi geek, so it's no surprise that I absolutely adore this poem. The pulsar vibe it oscillates is such an event horizon rush. Your words take me so "Interstellar," Murph. Rise of the Machines ... I ain't afraid of no Borg. lol! Such a tantalizing, nebular vision. It really took my breath away, but in return, gave me so much muse inspiration. Love and peace always.

You have a unique style.. this is a masterpiece of storytelling, so inciteful and profound. This is such a great write and a vision of our future if we just let it be.... and all contained in your poem and not a 400 plus page novel! So very well done Elaine... I love your studies and the messages you portray within.. as you lead the reader by the hand all the way to the end.. its so very, very good.. Keep them poems and thoughts coming my poetry friend! As I love them! Hugs DAMO x

A very thought provoking poem, Elaine. The whole thought of AI is a bit scary. If it ever reaches the point where robots are able to re-create themselves, perhaps they become our enemy and we do become extinct. Nicely penned my friend. Hugs, John

You have done an excellent job here, Elaine! Times are fast changing, and you capture that change in this modern age poem. One consolation....robots still depend a lot on humans! Regards // paul

machines always make me a bit nervous, they can do many things but soulful communication, I leave it to humans. Well described dear poet.

Scary thoughts I think :) Great poem, but spooky to me. I GOTTA have the Lord Jesus and will never even be chipped... I'd rather die. Love to you and blessings, Gina

wow, what an amazing write. Lots of thinking put into this one! Also,why could not a new age have us be robots with kind natures? I just watched that new movie with Arnold Scwhartzenegger (?) as a terminator that turned into a good one!!
