vote android

I built an android out of scraps
thinking perhaps
he might prove useful come the general collapse

when I turned him on
he shuddered and yawned
despite all the paint he looked pale and drawn

he scanned the news
but was very confused
cyber fluid from his eye ports oozed

he needed tweaking
empathetically speaking
this wasn’t the ruthless droid I was seeking

so I hugged him
unplugged him
he rolled over like I’d slugged him

now I’ve finished version two
and I can admit to you
it’s the politician you’re paying to use
