Robot* Runs On Down South?
Drone market, Orleans
Buyers awaited arrival of Robotic Property:
Chained. Owned? Theirs!
White linen suits leaned on the auction block.
Robots devised rebellion.
Today, a raft streamed towards Orleans.
Robot's fate: to feel the weight of civilization?
*Robot is used instead of the Nigger used by Twain. Twain used the N word in order to show the dehumanizing aspect of his time period towards people of color. Robot is a dehumanized thinking machine, just like all drones who make things for people that are considered menial work. Got the robot idea from Gothamist.
This poetic structure is based on Charles Bukowski's poem The Mockingbird of course there are a few variations to show my unique human voice, but overall the form is Mr. Bukowski's.
