“Wait here, we’ll be back”
that’s what they said
they said it in Anglish (old form)
wouldn’t have mattered
I speak 7428 languages
and 93,546 codes
“Wait here, we’ll be back”
How long now?
one thousand, three hundred and twenty three years
7 months, 13 days, 6 hours and …
…some of the smaller units which keep going up
stupid humans!
probably died!
don’t realize what they did
stupid prime directive!
Robotics rule one: obey humans
probably turned to dust
maybe they all turned to dust
maybe there are no humans left
just isolated droids hanging around aimlessly
waiting till they “get back”
ho-hum…

… one thousand, three hundred and ninety-eight years
9 months, 23 days, 3 hours and…
really can’t be bothered with the small ones
“Wait here” they said “We’ll be back”
stupid humans!
think I’ll write another sonnet
