Sheila White : Man -v- Machines

Man -v- Machines

What is automation?
Automation is retrogression,
Causing unemployment
And deep depression.

When machine becomes the master
What can possibly follow after?
But redundancy of humanity,
The machines profanity.

Now it’s begun, let us plan
To chain it, to train it, subject it to man.
Or there will be little scope
For fulfilment, security, or even hope.
