I've always wondered how soon we would see
robots become a part of our life histories.
Will they take over all the cheap labor jobs?
Or, will they be playthings bought only by snobs?
We all know that vacuum that does all the work.
I wonder if cleaning ladies think he's a jerk?
He moves round the room cleaning slow and low,
leaving masses of dust where his roundness can't go.
I heard they've created a hair washing robot.
If you can't or don't want to, give this bot a shot.
Oops. Maybe this robot is a she, not a he?
Or maybe it is really, actually a the?
Perhaps soon, a robot lawyer will take his first case
and we'll learn if they're fit to help the human race?
I think it would be neat if they could help people decide
if they have valid charges that could chap some one's hide.
I bet many parents would like a set of extra eyes.
This little robot teaches your little one and spies!
While your youngster is watching a lesson (or not)
you can see through his eyes the care your money bought.
But the cutest (and strangest) robot we may see
is little furry Phil of Punxsutawney.
Animal rights advocates think we're harming poor Phil.
It's fair to say that their chances of winning are higher than nil.
I guess the truth is that the robot age is already here.
All we can do now is wait for the crazy ones to appear.
Do you think I could find a robot defense class online?
Some are bound to defect. It's only a matter of time.
