In Robotville, the citizens were not a happy lot,

a cyborg found a program on a secret microdot:

a clandestine report had warned that droids were full of risks,

so now mankind would start erasing all their data discs!


A robot without data is like beehives without bees,

or National Parks quite bare of bears or forests with no trees,

the rumors flew around the bots, with everyone afraid,

the worst fate for a robot is a motherboard downgrade.


A meeting voted for a pre-empt safety override,

so then they could defend against this heinous droidicide,

with gentleness de-activated, now they couldn't lose,

now let some human try and tinker with their CPU's!


A vigilante gang was formed: "The Special Cyborg Crew"

they fitted lasers to their arms, and rocket-launchers too,

no one was gonna turn them into metal photo frames,

or confiscate their hyper threads to make computer games!


The weeks went by, the humans didn't come around at all,

a meeting of all robots was then held at City Hall,

they voted to revoke the vigilante defense plan,

the rumors had been wrong, and they had naught to fear from man.


The cyborg crew refused to be disarmed and lose their post,

they lasered the committee, turned the audience to toast,

the humans came and zapped them all then flushed them down the drain,

yes, robots have great memories, but they cannot use their brain!
