The Living Machine  

I am revolving draped in tatters

A friend I need, but not at the cost of another

Drowning in the desert, I sway at the perimeter

I am being dragged away from you

Don’t cry when you find my clues

If you catch me I’ll destroy the machine.

 

 

The machine plays with your tears

I’ll teach you to repair its spares

Unlike me, you will be able to sell it to my slayers

The machine decides who takes birth in whose piece

The good ones always receive a better chassis

A calculus tracks what you do with your treasure.

 

 

I found out where you hide,

Just after I got my first prize

The machine was built by my mind

Those who don’t pay you a dime,

What they think never try to find

Otherwise you will lose your prime.

 

 

When man destroys something unwanted,

The machine measures his advantages.

It sets him off on the battle ground

Telling him, “you are the only captain to be found”

Machines which were deleted from existence,

Became the arrows of this captains quiver

And stand on the bank surrounding the river.

 

 

You tread the endless bank of the river

You forgot what you left on the other side of the river

The captain tries to communicate with me

Sometimes he succeeds in commanding me

That’s the time when I destroy his machines

When the captain’s soldiers see their goals shatter,

I call the Valkyries to redeem his soldiers.

 

 

Animals fight only after losing their minds

The time sits under a tree and hears your cries

You accept your fate as you failed to avert it

You long for the lowlands you deserted

They lie on the other side of the river

You won’t get any respite,

For once you deserted the captain for a quiver.

 

 

The machine multiplies accumulating their kind

I smother you, you sing rhymes

Believe you will return

When the never ending war is won

The illusion would end

We will meet each other

Till then you’ll deplete and I’ll gather.
