Keep getting sales calls (automated)
And politicians and pressure groups
would not mind the attention-but they are robots
like when i call to say our phone is not working-
"This call will be monitored for quality assurance"
then get transferred to India(outsourced)
No human hands at all-just a program
Like when a gas leak is detected
so they instal a SMART METER
no more gas meter readers/so we will all
either become robots or serve them.
People start to talk in cliches
predictable as supermarkets.
Workforce shrinks like plastic in a frying pan
and who can talk to a robot?Diebold jiggles voting machines
Hackers spam and slackers program
Iran Stuxnet info wars/Wikileaks in legal wars
Information currency-this poem redacted as you can see
what needs to be shared cannot be
Even robots write poetry!
