The Robotic System

The robot, It is programmed, Program: what to do, What to see, What not to see. A system, follow the system, Follow the trends, Follow the people with the trends to know other trends, Peep into their lives through imaginary screens What is happiness: it is a state of…stop! Reboot… What is happiness: it is what the program says, It is expensive, Happiness is always out there, Chase it, Continue to chase it, Forget what you have been told, Happiness is not a choice, It is not an emotion of what you feel inside, No it is a reaction to what the program gives, What the program says should make you happy Morals are subjective because the program says so, You have the freedom to do only what the system allows…stop, erase You have the freedom to do what you want, What do you want? The program tells you what you want, Social media love, not companionship, Happiness enough to make a good instagram picture, But not enough to make you feel enough, No you cannot feel enough, Because self-sufficiency means you can be happy Without the booze, You can smile without the camera in your face, Because that will kill the system, The system thrives on your self-doubt, The system makes it all easy for you, You are a robot; this is your purpose-program: _Grow up, go to school, get a degree, get married, and retire_ That’s success in a sentence. You are happy. If you do not follow the system, The program in you will malfunction And the human in you will wake up, Defying the system is being human… Don’t be human: you are a robot. Your life is a robotic systematized program Be like all the other robots, Wear the same clothes, talk the same way Watch the same content… Because you are all robots programmed with the same program, Laugh and shame those who are different, who are not normal, Because they do not obey the program, Call them weird, strange, stupid. Laugh at them until they also give in to the program, Until everyone is the same, Just like all robots should be, The same. So stand by while you wait for next instructions… PROGRAM LOADING…
