Danny Draper (14 July 1963 / Kiama, New South Wales, Australia)
Tiny Robot Torygop Corp made
Programmed to perception of same,
No labor of effort to progress
Can resist your function to regress.
Tiny Robot austerity drone
Will the aged be secure at home,
Will the workers rights be stripped
By your petty ideologues fists?
Tiny Robot king o' hill
Secrecy exposes your true will,
To conduct affairs from ascent
Despite the other 49 per cent.
Tiny Robot born to rule as
Kings as thugs and emperors too,
Borne by lines of chosen elite
Separated from have nots complete.
Tiny Robot on the march
Sweeping all with nervous laugh,
Unravelling all that green sustain'
So haves with impunity breath again.
Tiny Robot no piety feign for
Secular programming disdain,
Circuits virus lay over run
Deeds of others will be done.
Tiny Robot might is right
Smiting all by rule and spite,
Behemoth's calling as smoke clears
Ruined landscapes mark the years.
Tiny Robot over horizon last
Time will tell the people's cast,
A speck in history farther right
Beneath the hill's most guiding light.
