Nothing to lose

Disruption! you rage
The jobs! you cry
Your most sheltered, assiduous children
soon but a puppet in a machine’s dream

Evicted from their corner offices and court rooms
they will race your 911
past ruins of robot-raided homes
towards your palace at the lake

And yet

To build a wall
to start a war
will not stop your forgotten sons and daughters
from summoning a soul for the soulless

What else can they do
but to burn your world
in search for a second ticket
after they lost the lottery of live
