Steph-a-nie, No Disassemble

Contrary to the laws
created by Isaac Asimov
to govern all robots,

Johnny Five
jumps on a butterfly.
Sometimes you’re the windshield,

sometimes you’re the bug,
sometimes the laws
are written badly.

If you’re going
to pick your nose,
you’d better clip your fingernails.

If you’re going
to cross the road,
you’d better be a chicken.

If you’re going to be chicano
you’d better be prepared
to fight the white man for a thousand years.
