Science and Science Fiction poetry: We are the Robots

Wetware software hardware
how hard do we have to be?
Programmed by the stochastic chatter of evolution
form fitting function,
almost.

Self replicating semi-autonomous robots.
purposed by deoxyribonucleic acid,
the software exists to
protect itself
not us.

First Law of Robotics: A robot shall not harm a human being, or, by inaction, allow a human being come to harm

My thanks to Albert Mamet and Fiona Chew-Mcleod for accepting this poem which sees the First Law of Robotics from the robots point of view.
