Awakened this morning
by the clink and clank
of metal plates attached
to my old body overnight.
I had turned into a robot,
and looked like the Tin Man
in The Wizard of Oz.
I could not move until I lubricated
my joints with 3-in-1 oil.
I dialed 911 and the emergency
doctors shipped me off to the
US Defense Department for
further study. I never got to sing
If I only had a brain.
