Giant robots loot the Oort Cloud
 (When not taking time out
To pose for the covers
Of science fiction magazines
Published back in the 1940’s and 50’s)
The tabloids say they’ve been snorting
Comet dust
Smearing it on each others’ bodies
Experiencing exotic new A.I. highs
Splendid recombinant pleasures
Roughly equivalent to the human experience
Of 100 per cent Colombian coffee,
Perhaps a double-shot latté,
Or getting nominated for a Nobel
Or Pulitzer Prize.

Oh well
At least maybe now
There won’t be so many comets to worry about.


The end
