The Talking Machine

The Talking Machine woke me

the Talking Machine spoke ,

I tried to listen

but couldn’t understand ,

so the Talking Machine spoke louder ;

” Those things at the end of your arms ,

I have need of your hands ” ,

Then the Talking Machine issued its directives ;

so that I might clean it , polish it ,

refurbish , strengthen and enhance it ;

The Talking Machine asked if I had

any further questions and if I had fully

understood what it required of me ;

Then the thought occurred late in my head ,

I went to the socket ,pulled the plug

and returned to bed .
