Musings - The Three Laws - Poem by Paul Warren

The three robotic laws Isaac Asimov wrote down
Were meant to keep us safe when robots were around
A robot may not injure a human being
Or allow a human being to come to harm as it is seen

And a robot must obey orders by human beings given
Unless it conflicts with the first law as it is written
Then a robot must protect its own existence then
So long as it doesn't conflict to the 1st or 2nd laws to comprehend

It would seem that these rules are logical to all
And when thinking about robots it seems to be the call
The one thing I can't work out when applying the laws
Is why us humans don't have to obey and it's one of our flaws
