You think you know the pain,
The sorrows day to day,
False deception
Hides the truth some way

A slave to reality,
A maid to society,
The mask
Disguises facts
Behind the pearly teeth

Look at the robot,
The perfect machine,
Tell it what to do
Or ignore it,
It has no feeling

If it did
It wouldn't matter,
As long as it didn't talk back
Never voiced what it felt,
Was never itself

If it did
You would throw it away,
After all,
It was worthless,
