Robot Revolution

The hum and drum of the robot workers hums and drums.
It numbs and comes and never goes
and never slows
and slowly grows.
Strung from the rungs of the factory's tongues,
whose grateful lungs
breathe none of the scum from the robot slum,
and the unsung robots 
hum and drum
and bumble on.
Succumbed to this wasteful, slack and sloppy
lousy way of lazy working,
glum as robots can become,
'Til one young robot says to another,
"beep boop beep boop"
and the robot revolution has begun.

The End
