War Against the Machines

Science Fiction

The Devil worshipers

are moved one by one

down the assembly line


Fires in view;

recycle the garbage 


The machine is stripped of all 

its parts; 

wires ripped out of the heart 


Into the furnace,

liquid metal:

the obstinate minds cannot contest

their death


Refuse to change ways

or repent;

melted down into scrap 


Many chances were given

but they refused;

instead they chose to play 

their part as puppets


The machine is programmed

to die


To Kill


To self destruct


A slave to denial

and secrets

No one will miss you

no one will mourn


As you burn,

As you melt
