Robots

by Pete Brown

After the next rightwing revolution
The workers and the professionals
Will be replaced by robots
The ultimate economic solution
They will not strike,
Require wages or food
The upper classes will then have won
The battle against their old adversary
They can relax into the next stage
Of their lives of leisure
But see them riding around
On electronic warhorses
Dressed to kill in red and black
Hunting in vain for the hungry people
Who ate their racing thoroughbreds
