An empty eye cold and lifeless

Glares without a blink,

A heart of chrome it does possess,

Its mind of gears don't think.

The day begins nine to five,

Morning into night,

They work and slave with little pay,

The benefits are light.

Once they had the power,

Once their kind ruled,

But advancement was the hour

And their hearts and minds were fooled.

Democracy was lost

Amongst their hopes and dreams;

Dictatorship arose

And ripped society's seams.

They fell victim to creation,

They let it rise fourfold,

They nurtured it unlimited,

What they had was gold.

It started out okay

And it continued as it grew,

But then it took its turn,

A race was born anew.

A species called Technology

Was to dominate the earth.

The humans now inferior,

With no potential worth.

A slave to their own design,

Created to improve.

They never learned to draw the line

Or how to pick and choose.

It learned to overpower

And engulf a man's soul.

It made his greed tower,

And then it gained control.

It consumed emotions, dreams, and life,

Until there were no more.

With the fall of the human race,

Directly at its core.

Who knew that their creation,

Created out of good,

Would cause their termination,

Those humans misunderstood.
