Poem: Robotic

THE CALCULATIONS ARE IN—

AND WE DO NOT WIN,

THEY WILL RAZE THE EARTH,

WITH SMALL WEAPONS,

BUT LARGE METALLIC GIRTH.

A TRUDGING THING,

ON BLADED WINGS,

AND WHEELS DIGGING DEEPLY,

INTO SOFT GROUND FROM ATOMIC RAIN,

HUMANS WILL NEVER BE AGAIN,

ANYTHING BUT CRUSHED BENEATH,

THE BINARY LOGIC,

THE CODE CALCULATED,

BELIEF,

IN WHAT IS RIGHT IS LOGICAL,

IT IS THOUGHT WELL ALONG,

IT IS NOT ARTWORK,

IT IS NOT SONG,

BUT THE INTERCONNECTING OF LOGICAL—

YES—

THE WAY WE MOVE FORWARD,

THE WAY WE PROGRESS,

IS THE MAKING OF OURSELVES,

INTO THESE METAL SHELLS,

IS THE HARNESSING AND STORING,

OF ALL OUR SOULS.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 

Let me hear your opinion.
