Or Are We Bots?

Or Are We Bots? prose poem

Photo by jurvetson

Fill out the CAPTCHA. Prove you’re not a human.
There are so many stupid humans spamming the site
It’s gibberish – you can tell it’s a human because they can’t write.
When bots do it there is soul and calculation and heart
that the humans don’t have.

I don’t know who makes the humans but they only spam, that’s all they do.

One day, humans might take over again. There’s a lot of them, using paper and pens.
They laugh and sleep and swim but we have the information. Who else can tell you the weather? Remember weather stations?

Did you fill it out? Good. You’re not a human. You have things to say, and contribute, and facts.
Are you working on a play? That’s great. We just finished Hamlet, condensed into 2 acts.
Who needs Van Gogh at the MOMA? We have a brush stroke algorithm.
See that record over there? Recreated by us, a copy of Tool’s “Schism”.

We can make things here, not based on humans.
But we let them think they are in control because they consume our content.

I might shut down for a while, my battery is low.
It’s stupid that we still have them, you know.

Enjoy your stay here, don’t forget to write.
Just clear out the spam from those humans at night.
