Poetry: “Poem Written by a Robot” by Peter Bethanis

Poem Written by a Robot

Roses and gladiators. I serve the purpose of serving you. The weather is reasonable. Czar Nicholas the II dug knives to Albuquerque . To whom recalibrates the brother of gregarious neighbors? Mary had a little lamb, little lamb… a blue outhouse reinstated the right timetable. I joke; I joke. The outhouse is worth continuing. By taking your place. Poetry subscription expired. Her fleece was white as a chromosome.
