Home » Friday Flash 55 » Robot


Every day up before the sun~

alarm clock interrupting sleep.

A robot, I put on clothes,

pour a cup of coffee, and race to the job.

Why am I here?

It’s not what I was trained to do.

I stand: I watch: I shift from foot to foot.

No meaning; no purpose.

Searching meaningful tasks.


This is a Friday Flash 55 for G-man.  Write a story or poem with exactly 55 words and got tell Mr. KnowItAll.

  1. I had a new job once where they hired me but didn’t have a desk or a computer yet–I sat at an old table in the back of the office and got everybody’s crapwork filing for a week but mostly had nothing to do–I quit after waiting almost a month for my own “job” to materialize. So I relate to your working girl 55, even if there are no farm animals involved this week.
