His empty eyes filled up with pity
And he did nothing to resist
His home no longer felt like his
His echo cried, “who build this city?”

And in response he heard a voice,
“It is by chance and not by choice
That grass is dying under granite
Machines you’ve made now rule the planet”

At once he though about his drawing
Upon a paper with a stain
He sketched a robot with a brain
“I did this all without knowing...”

Where trees were once a common sight
Skyscrapers stood a mile in height
The sun no longer gave off heat
And fires burned throughout the street

The walls were shaking from his scream
He found himself tucked in his bed
His forehead covered up with sweat
“Thank God that it was all a dream”

He rushed outside to get some air
The spring was raging everywhere
His heart filled up with admiration
“It’s good to be someone’s creation!”
