Naughty or Nice?

Yes, that’s the question on Santa’s lips this time of year as he goes through that big ol’ book of his checking off whether any kids across this world of ours have been good, for goodness sake or otherwise, or whether they’ve been naughty (crying, and or, pouting) over the past 365 days. Now, how that jolly old elf makes his reckoning of the state of these children’s souls I can’t rightly tell you, but there’s been a somethin’ on my mind that relates to this that I’d like to bring to your attention this holiday season.

You see, you and I, we’ve got no control over the presents Santa and his elves be a making up there in the North Pole, and what a small child asks St. Nick to leave them under the tree is not mine or anyone’s business, but, if, as a parent, guardian, grandparent, friend of the family, or weird uncle (even weird aunt these days)  you are considering buying a robot for a young one this year, please, read the following Poetization™ before you do.

Yeah

I know

I thought the same thing

that’s a cool robot

until a friend pointed out

that the word

‘Robot’

comes from the Czech word

‘Robota’

which means

forced labor

yeah

that’s right

slaves

robot’s not so cool now

is it?
