Automata.

I guess machines are people too.
Prodding at buttons
And twisting knobs and remembering data.
Brains and pools of cloud
Swim in ether
Kinda like us, easing youth outta
Jobs and creeping about in secret lives.
Making life ‘easier’ when those
In the middle hope for
A dystopian future.
All the jobs are taken, processing
Completed with sharper metal minds
And more nimble fingers.
Photos snapped by drones
Because after all they can see
The bigger picture.
There was a time when an apple
Was fruit, sustenance and the first and final
Penance of the human race.
Movies shot on location by
Former aluminium servants
And editing completed by stripping
Away humanity.
