They were warned but of course never listened
that to develop synthetic beings
could lead to mankind becoming an obsolete item
scientist full of self-gratification
resolute to create artificial intelligence proceeded
telling us they were needed!
Excitement mounting as they became more human
made to move and act like us
even more terrifying able to think much quicker
and retain endless knowledge
they can surpass even the cleverest scientific brain
allowing this how insane!
Certainly not long before they were integrated
into an unstable society
very short lived the synthetic beings accepted
there was suspicion and dread
initially invented for a subservient role at first
soon their kind we did curse!
Able to live with repairs forever no human mess
this creation of mankind
soon treating humans as inferior co-habitants
upon a planet they once ruled
outcast and unwanted now the wars had begun
few living when the fighting was done!
Too rapid for counter measures we took their place
our own creation to the death had to face!
The Foureyed Poet.
