Dogslandia Sonnet #159

We cannot save the bees so let’s build bees
It’s easier just to make a tiny robot drone
Than to change how we plant trees
Changing how we farm, we field, we home
Better just to build a better bee
It will be battery operated, require jobs
Factories to build it, refine it, see
the workers lining up to turn the knobs
And lawyers will protect the patents
And truckers will drive the bots to fields
Where salesmen set up contracts and latent
economic investments unlock on fortune’s wheel
Wait for the man come round to release new bots
It’s better this way, plastic buzzing dot to dot.
