The future is here. Robots are doing surgery... and what will it be like when we find ourselves sitting in front of a cold bundle of wires and composite materials, spilling our guts to an android?

Precarious me 

Render this plea 

Surrender to 

An android sea 

A robot who 

A Doctor too 

Will we survive 

The skill of you 

You've taken heart 

And left in place 

Cold fingerprint 

Mechanical race 

You've made me to 

This carbon shell 

A man who walks 

But isn't well 

The lot of us 

Will know no pain 

But in your wake 

Can be no gain 

As zombies we 

Will do no more 

Then wander earth 

A silent score 

Emotion lost 

You're in control 

The human race 

Has lost its soul
