No Work on Sundays
What does the robot businessman do
when the office building is closed
and there is no work to be done?
does he have barbecues with his family
just like all the other workers do?
no, of course he doesn't,
because, remember, robots never eat.
instead, he prays to the god of robots
just like he was programmed to do
ever since he was a robot boy.
but he does not understand the meaning of leisure.
He counts his dimes and waits
for a new day to begin.
